Waterfalls are considered to be one of the most beautiful phenomena in nature .As you can see from the photo attached above these are not only the world’s highest waterfalls but also can provide one of the most amazing scenery .
World’s Highest Waterfall – Angel Falls , Venezuela
Angel Falls is the world highest waterfall, with a height of 979 m (3,212 ft) and a plunge of 807 m (2,648 ft ) located in Venezuela. The waterfall drops over the edge of the Auyantepui mountain in the Canaima National Park a UNESCO World Heritage site in Bolívar State, Venezuela.
The other waterfalls that need to be taken into consideration are :
Gocta Cataracts – 2,532 feet
The Gocta Waterfall is a perennial waterfall with two drops located in Peru’s province of Chachapoyas.
Its existence was made public following an expedition made in 2005 by a German, Stefan Ziemendorff, with a group of Peruvian explorers. At the time of his discovery he successfully persuaded the Peruvian government to map the falls and to measure their height.
Monge Marstein – 2,535 feet
Monge Falls is one of the world’s highest waterfalls . They also hold the distinction as being the highest waterfalls in the world which may be viewed from a railway station. In this case, they are located on the famous Rauma Railway, on the northside of the tracks between Flatmark and Marstein. Unfortunately, as is the case with many of Norway’s tallest waterfalls, they have been targeted for hydroelectric power, which results in a greatly diminished water flow during the summer tourist season.
Utigord – 2,685 feet
Utigord falls ,also called Ramnefjellsfossen after the killer mountain of Ranmefjell ,are the third highest free-leaping waterfalls in the world at approximately 2,685-feet. The falls, located at Nesdalen in Norway, are fed by the Jostedal Glacier.
Tugela – 3,110 feet
Tugela Falls , the world’s second highest waterfall , are located in the Drakensberg (Dragon’s Mountains) in the Royal Natal National Park , Republic of South Africa.
They are easily viewed after a heavy rain from the main travel road into the park, glistening from the reflection of the late afternoon sun. The source of the Tugela River is at Mont-Aux-Sources . The water is pure and safe to drink above the falls.
