#8 Gullfoss

#8 Gullfoss

Gullfoss is a waterfall located in the canyon of Hvita river in southwest Iceland. Gullfoss is one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country. The wide Hvita rushes southward. About a kilometer above the falls it turns sharply to the right and flows down into a wide curved three-step "staircase" and then abruptly plunges in two stages (11 m and 21 m) into a crevice 32 m (105 ft) deep. The crevice, about 20 m (60 ft) wide, and 2.5 km in length, extends perpendicular to the flow of the river. The average amount of water running over this waterfall is 140 m/s in the summertime and 80 m/s in the wintertime. The highest flood measured was 2000 m/s. As one first approaches the falls, the crevice is obscured from view, so that it appears that a mighty river simply vanishes into the earth.

#4 Angel Falls

#4 Angel Falls

If you are to measure only based on height, Angel Falls is the biggest waterfall in the world. Angel Falls stands at an astonishing 979 meters. This plunge waterfall's longest drop (out of 47) is 807 meters. Although the fall is located in Venezuela, it is named after US Aviator Jimmie Angel because he was the first pilot to (accidentally) fly over the falls in 1933. Before then, the fall was relatively unknown outside of Venezuela.
As you can imagine, this fall is now the country's top tourist attraction. But if you want to visit the fall, you should be forewarned; getting there can be a little tricky. Because it is located in an isolated jungle that has gone largely undeveloped, you will need to fly from either Puerto Ordaz or Ciudad Bolivar to reach the entry point to the river, where you will have to raft to the fall.

#3 Niagara Falls

#3 Niagara Falls

Probably the most famous waterfall in the world,Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of New York.
They form the southern end of the Niagara Gorge. From largest to smallest, the three waterfalls are the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls.
The Horseshoe Falls lie on the Canadian side and the American Falls on the American side, separated by Goat Island. The smaller Bridal Veil Falls are also located on the American side, separated from the other waterfalls by Luna Island.
The international boundary line was originally drawn through Horseshoe Falls in 1819, but the boundary has long been in dispute due to natural erosion and construction.
