The World's Most Breathtaking Waterfalls

One of nature's most beautiful creations, waterfalls can come in all shapes and sizes. Some mark borders, such as the spectacular Iguazu Falls, which separate Argentina and Brazil, while others, like Niagara Falls, are beloved tourist destinations. And then there are still others, which are perhaps lesser known, but equally stunning. In Kanchanaburi, Thailand, for example, a deep forest waterfall looks as though it's been plucked out of an enchanted fairytale, complete with a vivid turquoise pool below.

Meanwhile, across the world in Iceland, gorgeous glacial waterfalls are the norm during the winter months. Standouts include Seljalandsfoss in the southern part of the country, Gullfoss in the southwest and Godafoss, which translates to The Waterfall of The Gods. California's Alamere Falls, on the other hand, are an example of a rare 'tidefall,' which is a waterfall that flows directly into the ocean.

But one thing's for sure: all of these cascading delights are magnificent in their own ways.
