It is difficult to decide what makes a waterfall beautiful. Until you see it with your own eyes, to feel the atmosphere and to be surrounded by its magic, you can’t say with your hand on your heart which is the most beautiful waterfall only through some online pictures.
Instead, through the pictures, you can get an idea of a top of waterfalls considered miraculous, to make a bucket list of what you will visit in the future.
So, I present to you the following 5 waterfalls considered the most beautiful in the world that most of us have heard and that honestly, we would all like to see with our own eyes.
1. Niagara Falls
Located at the border of New York, United States, and Ontario, Canada, it is considered the most beautiful waterfall in the world. I am sure every single one of us heard of it. Niagara is so large that it can be seen from both Canada and the United States, and is actually on the border between the two countries.
Niagara Falls is both a daytime and evening attraction. For example, from the Canadian side, floodlights illuminate both sides of the falls for several hours after dark (until midnight).
2. Yangtze Falls
Located in China, this waterfall represents the longest river in Asia, the third-longest in the world and the longest in the world to flow entirely within one country.
It seems to be detached from the stories and you wouldn’t think it was possible to look like that until you see it with your own eyes.
The river symbolically separates the north of the country from its south – areas with different traditions and also passes through 9 cities.
The Yangtze has played a major role in the history, culture and economy of China. For thousands of years, the river has been used for water, irrigation, sanitation, transportation, industry, boundary-marking and war. And now, it is considered one of the most beautiful tourist attractions.
3. Seven Sisters Falls
This waterfall is located in Norway and it is the 39th tallest waterfall in Norway.
The waterfall is called Seven Sisters because of a local legend from Norway, they said that the legend of the seven sisters is that they dance playfully down the mountain. Meanwhile, across the fjord, the suitor flirts playfully with them from afar.
The waterfalls are part of the list of habitats protected by UNESCO due to their importance and due to the river that crosses the area. The best way to admire the waterfalls is by boat, especially if you choose a cruise.
4. Bigăr Falls
Located in Romania, Bigăr Waterfall is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the world, which impresses with its unique shape. The waterfall consists of a spring of groundwater that drains over a limestone wall, over 7 meters high, completely covered with moss. In an international top made in 2013 with the most beautiful waterfalls in the world, Bigăr waterfall is in the first place as a uniqueness.
Unfortunately, this year, Bigăr Waterfall collapsed. It can still be visited and is still considered a unique place, instead, its collapse broke the hearts of Romanians.
5. Ruby Falls
Ruby Falls is a series of underground cascading waterfalls totalling 145 feet in Lookout Mountain, near Chattanooga, Tennessee, in the United States.
The road to this waterfall begins with an elevator that goes down 26 floors underground and continues walking along a cave.
While the waterfall is natural, the place is shrouded in an impressive play of light with colourful LEDs.
They created a real fairy tale through those LEDs. It is remarkable and it seems that you would never want to leave that place.
I hope that each of you will have the opportunity to visit these wonderful waterfalls.
