01. Kirkjufellsfoss Waterfall
It’s not always about the size that a waterfall would be considered a world wonder. The combination of the Kirkjufellsfoss waterfall and the peak of Kirkjufell located at only 463 meters are forming a spectacular view that only nature would ever be able to create. You should definitely add Iceland, the town of Grundarfjörður on your destinations list.
03. Kuang Si Falls
Kuang Si Falls is a three-tier cascade waterfall, located about 29 kilometers south of Luang Prabang. Most of the pools are open for swimming but there is one that is closed because it is considered to be sacred. Can you imagine swimming in this Paradise?
03. Popokvil Waterfall
Popokvil Waterfall is located close to the Bokor mountain, in Cambodia. Its name means swirling clouds because of the falling water over its two tiers. The best view is considered to be the one towards the back.
04. Helmcken Falls
Helmken Falls is a 141 meters waterfall on the Murtle River situated in the Wells Gray Provincial Park in British Columbia, Canada. It is the fourth highest waterfall in Canada. Although most tourists see Helmcken Falls in summer, a winter visit is worthwhile because the ice come at the base grows to 50 m tall and sometimes even higher. It should be a spectacular view!
