1. Iguazu Falls
Iguazu Falls are waterfalls of the Iguazu River located on the border between the Brazilian state of Paraná and the Argentine province of Misiones. The falls divide the river into upper and lower Iguazu. With its edges over a distance of 2 km in an incredible average flow of 1.3 million liters per second, this reduction is high on the list. The succession is composed of some 275 individual cascades and waterfalls. Catwalks make it easy to get a close and intimate atmosphere make the landscape of rainforest feel a natural attraction of this type.
2. Victoria Falls
Victoria Falls is located in South Africa, the Zambezi River between the countries of Zambia and Zimbabwe. Victoria Falls are also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya, which means "the smoke that thunders" in the language of the tribe Kololo, which were present in 1800. David Livingstone, the first European to see the falls is named in honor of Queen Victoria in 1855. So he was surprised that describes the fall called "scenes so lovely must have been seen by angels in their flight." It is the largest waterfall in the singular in the world covering a width of 1.7 km, a height of 108m and an average throughput of 1 million liters per second.
3. Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls are great waterfalls on the Niagara River, straddling the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of York. Niagara Falls were formed when the glaciers retreated at the end of the Wisconsin glaciation (the last ice age), and the water of the new Great Lakes carved a path through the Niagara Escarpment en route to the Atlantic Ocean. While not exceptionally high, Niagara Falls is very wide. More than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m³) of water that falls on the crest line every minute in high flow and almost 4 million cubic feet (110,000 m³) on average. That fall the most powerful in North America. Niagara Falls are famous for their beauty and as a valuable source of hydroelectric power. Managing the balance between recreational, commercial and industrial was a challenge to the guardians of the tomb in 1800.
4. Angel Falls
Angel Falls is the highest waterfall in the world with a height of 1054 m (3458 ft) and a fall of 807 m (2648 ft). This is the highest waterfall in the world, falling by nearly a kilometer (about 979 million, with a total climb of 807m free fall) of a table mountain known as Auyantepuy (or Auyantepui means "Mountain of God evil" or "Devil's Mountain" ). The drop height is so great that before getting anywhere close to the ground, most of the water has evaporated or washed away like a thin mist by strong winds. Its existence seems a paradox that is not powered by conventional sources of drainage, such as snow / ice melting, lakes, or a large river system. In fact, the abundance of water is almost entirely responsible for the fall of precipitation condensation cloud above the rainforest on the plateau Auyantepuy. It 's almost as if the clouds twisting tepui like water on a cloth.
Angel Falls is also called Salto Angel or locally Kerepakupai Meru. Name from the indigenous natives Pemón means "grave of the deepest place." Ironically, the most famous name in the fall has nothing to do with the connotation that the water falls from the sky. In fact, turned out to be the name of aviator Jimmy Angel, who in 1937 landed his plane over Auyantepui near waterfalls, in an attempt to show the world the existence of the grave (and search for gold). Given the soggy field at the top of tepuy, the plane was locked when he, his wife and two friends had no choice but to make the difficult journey along the vertical wall of tepui to civilization (which takes about 11 days). Only after this company falls are known throughout the world, and eventually falls were named after him. Jimmy Angel Plan has since been moved, restored and on display at the airport in Ciudad Bolívar.
