Waterfalls are probably one of the most beautiful and mesmerizing natural phenomenon of our planet. Waterfalls form when a river flows over a rocky ledge producing an amazing cascade of water that falls from a considerable height. There are many breathtaking waterfalls in the world and we had a hard time choosing which ones to include in our selection of top 10 beautiful waterfall wallpapers. Nonetheless, in our opinion all waterfalls are natural wonders of Earth and each has something unique and special.
Angel falls is the world’s tallest waterfall in the world with a total height of 979 m (3.212 ft.) and water dropping uninterrupted for 807 m (2.648 ft). Although the fall is located deep in the Venezuelan jungle which makes it difficult to visit, Angel Falls is Venezuela’s the top tourist attraction.
Niagara Falls is probably the widest known waterfall in the world attracting more than 15 million tourists annually. Located at the border between Canada and the United States, Niagara Falls consists of three different waterfalls totaling more than 168.000 m3of water falling every minute. Besides its natural beauty, the waterfall has been used as a source of hydroelectric power. In fact, all three generating stations built at Niagara Falls can produce more than 4 gig watts of power. Considering that one gig watt is enough to provide the energy for approximately 700.000 homes we can conclude that Niagara Falls truly is a force of nature.
Victoria Falls is considered the widest waterfall in the world. Locatedalong the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe, Victoria Falls has a width of 1,708 meters (5,604 ft.) and a height of 108 meters (354 ft.). Due to its width the fall creates a sheet of water more than a mile wide. The water sprays from a mist of water vapors that rise to a height of more than 400 meters (1.300 ft) which is visible from kilometers away. Another phenomenon that makes Victoria Falls so unique is the “moonbow” effect. This effect occurs at full moon and basically is a rainbow produced by light reflected of the surface of the moon. Now that’s something you don’t see every day!
