8. Yosemite Falls, California USA

Measuring 739 m Yosemite Falls is ranked as the highest waterfall in NorthAmerica and the sixth highest in the world. The spectacular view of the falls is breathless but credit goes to the scenery as well, granite cliffs and giant sequoia trees, thus making it one of the most striking sights in America as well as one of the most visited waterfalls in the world. It consists of 3 sections, the Upper Fall which plunges 440 m ,the Middle Cascades which tumbles around 206 m and the Lower Falls which drops 98m. All three sections or just some of them can be seen from different locations through the upper reaches of the Yosemite Valley. Since the falls runs on water from melting snow, in years of little snow, the falls may actually cease flowing altogether in late summer or fall.

9. Nohkalikai Falls, India

With its height of 335 meters Nohkalikai is one of the tallest waterfalls in India. The stream feeding these falls is relatively short, just about 2 km long, however the plateau from which it falls is very special since this is one of the wettest places on Earth. Just below the falls there has formed a plunge pool with unusual green colored water. The waterfall also has a legend behind it, but to keep everything in a happy note I won’t mention it here since it’s rather tragic, but if you’re curious you can look it up.

10.  Plitvice Falls, Croatia

Not among the world’s most high or wide waterfalls, if one was trying to look for the correct word to describe these falls, that word would be simply stunning. The national park is world famous for its lakes arranged in cascades. There are 16 lakes which can be seen from the surface. These are formed by several small rivers and subterranean karst rivers. There are thousands of small falls all created by calcifying plant life that grows up. The scenery here renders you speechless offering you an incredible show made up of distinctive colors ranging from azure to green, grey or blue.
