tallest waterfall


Honokohau Falls in Hawaii  is said to be the tallest waterfall on Maui. It plunges in two tiers for a total of 1600 feet, making it the second highest falls in the United States 


➳ I’m high on inspiration and awe this morning after The Tallest Man on Earth’s show. I drove home under a night sky full of stars with my head filled with this wonderful experience. Before all that, I went to some pretty waterfalls and made dinner under the trees, hiding from the rain.

Happy Arbor Day! We’re celebrating with this pic of majestic trees offering a window to a gorgeous view of Yosemite Falls at Yosemite National Park in California. Cascading more than 2,400 feet above Yosemite Valley, it’s the tallest waterfall in North America. Photo courtesy of Tiffany Nguyen.

This dramatic shot of Yosemite Falls was taken last month as the early morning fog began to burn off the valley floor. Yosemite Falls, one of the world’s tallest waterfalls, is actually made up of three separate falls: Upper Yosemite Fall, the middle cascades and Lower Yosemite Fall. The best time to see Yosemite Falls is November through July with peak flow typically in May. Follow along all day today as Yosemite National Park takes over Interior’s Instagram account, sharing stunning photos from the park: http://instagram.com/usinterior.

Hengifoss: Der Hengifoss ist mit 118 Metern Fallhöhe derzeit der viertgrößte Wasserfall Islands und liegt im Osten am See Lagarfljót nicht weit entfernt vom Hallormsstaður nahe der #933. Interessant sind die durch Eisenoxid rot gefärbten Lehmschichten.

With a drop height of 118 meters the waterfall Hengifoss is currently the forth tallest waterfall in Iceland. It is located in the East of Iceland in the neighbourhood of lake Lagarfljót not far away from Hallormsstaður and close to the road #933. The red strata patterns which in fact are made of clay colored by ferric oxide are quite interesting.

Incredible shot of Nohkalikai Falls, the tallest single plunge waterfall in India. It winds down a slope over 300 meters in height. The site is close to the border between India and Bangladesh and is south of the Himalayas, making it one of the wettest places on Earth (water supplied by the yearly monsoon). This setup has created low hills, plateaus, and lush greenery, where this waterfall is found.
