Most Spectacular Waterfalls in the World

Have you ever wondered which are the most spectacular waterfalls in the world?

A waterfall is one of the most beautiful natural element you can see when you go on a trip. For me, it’s a good place to meditate, although it gets quite noisy, but still.

Check out our world’s most spectacular waterfalls top list. Let’s get started!

#5 Multnomah Falls, Oregon

Multomah Falls has 2 steps. The upper falls has 165 meters (542 feet) and the lower falls has 21 meters (69 feet). It is the tallest waterfall in Oregon. You can enjoy the view from a 14-meter long footbridge above the lower falls. I think it’s amazing and the sights are great.

#4 Dudhsagar Falls, India

Knows as the Sea of Milk, Dudhsagar Falls is located on the Mandovi River in the India state of Goa , which is the smallest state by area in India. The water looks white like milk, so they named the waterfall Dudhsagar, ‘doodh’ meaning ‘milk’ in Hindi.
This waterfall looks spectacular and has its own legend. The legend said there was a princess who lived in a palace, in the forest. She loved bathing in a lake located nearby and used to drink ‘sweetened milk’ from a ‘golden jug’ jusr right after she finished her bath. But a prince was watching her while she drank from her jug, and she caught him. Ashamed, she poured the jug of milk in from of him as a improvised curtain to hide her body. Meanwhile, the maids covered her with her dress. The legend said it is that sweetened milk that cascades down as a tribute to the modesty of the princess.
