Iguazu Falls, Argentina
Iguazu Falls can be summed up in two words: raw power. Spanning the distance between the borders of the Argentine province of Misiones and the Brazilian state of Paraná, Iguazu, which translates to "big water,” boasts 275 individual terraced falls. Stretching across two miles of rain-forested cliffs and plummets, this UNESCO world heritage site’s most impressive drop is the U-shaped gorge known as the Devil’s Throat.
Kootenai Falls, Montana
Located in the North West corner of Montana, this breathtaking expanse of tumbling falls is equal parts terrifying and thrilling to behold. While the name may not be familiar, cinema buffs will likely recognize these cascades from the Oscar-nominated film The Revenant, and the area was once considered by the Kootenai tribe as the center of the universe, a place where tribal members could commune with spiritual forces. The best, albeit most daring, spot to watch these impressive falls in action is from the famed 210-foot long suspension bridge across the river.
Tinago Falls, Philippines
Boasting 23 waterfalls within its city limits, Iligan more than earns its “city of majestic waterfalls” moniker. But the Tinago cascades are what really put the destination on the map. Literally translated as “hidden falls,” Tinago redefines the meaning of off-the-beaten path, as one must climb a windy 500-step staircase in order to reach the top of the 240-foot falls.
Sekumpul Falls, Bali
Touted as the most beautiful waterfall in all of Indonesia, Sekumpul Falls is about a two-hour drive though the lush jungle terrain and rice terraces from the city of Ubud. True to its name, which translates to “a group of,” Sekumpul is actually a series of seven waterfalls, well worth the effort to visit while spending time on the island of the gods.
While the name doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue, Mardalsfossen boasts one of Europe’s tallest waterfalls, not to mention the tallest single drop in Norway. The dramatically tiered falls plummet down 2,154 feet of sheer granite, with the first plunge measuring in at 1,174 feet.
