Majestic by nature, waterfalls have always captured people’s imagination since ancient times due to their imposing geography. Gazing upon fairly large waterfalls, you understand why people associated mythical creatures with them in the old days. While waterfalls don’t really have to be all that grand in order to impress, the really large ones have been known to send chills down people’s spines. Ergo, here are the world’s biggest, largest waterfalls, landmarks that are as remarkable as they are imposing.
Niagara Falls is the waterfall with the largest volume of water traveling through it, but is nowhere near the largest waterfall on the planet. The waterfall is 3,950 feet wide and more than 168,000 cubic metres (6 million cubic feet) flow through it every minute, making it quite a sight to behold. Despite not being the world’s largest, Niagara Falls receives around 20 million visitors every year who come from all corners of the world to witness this imposing waterfall in person.
