The World’s 15 Most Amazing Waterfalls

Weather.com has compiled a list of the world’s 15 most spectacular waterfalls around the world – their size and power are awe-inspiring, especially when seen up close. Even more amazing is that in a time when NASA satellites and Google Earth seem to have recorded every square inch of the planet, even large waterfalls continue to be discovered. Below are three waterfalls around the world that made up the top 3 on the list. Click here to see the full rankings.

#1: Iguazu Falls, Brazil/Argentina: Located along the Iguazu River on the border between Brazil and Argentina, the Cataratas del Iguazú (as they’re known in Spanish) feature more than 270 drops along their 1.7-mile-wide cliffs, which range in height from just under 200 feet to nearly 270 feet.

#2: Angel Falls, Venezuela: Discovered in 1937 by American pilot Jimmie Angel, the first to see them from the air, Venezuela’s Angel Falls are accessible only after a five-hour canoe trip through the middle of a tropical forest. The falls’ majestic scenery was the inspiration for the 2009 Pixar animated movie ‘Up.’

#3: Niagara Falls, United States/Canada: Probably as famous as any waterfall on the planet, Niagara Falls is actually made up of three separate waterfalls – the American Falls and Bridal Veil Falls, which lie on the American side of Niagara, and the Horseshoe Falls, which lie on the Canadian side.
