7 Continents and 7 unreal Waterfalls you need on your bucket list

August 17, 2018

 

It's not an easy task when it comes to pinpointing seven of the world's most beautiful natural water wonders. Typically the tropical beaches, white sands, and beautiful island scenery are most commonly spoken about when appreciating tropical beauty. But when it comes to jaw-dropping scenery, waterfalls of this magnitude quite simply take the cake. Below we've listed our top seven unreal waterfalls you must visit, and of course, each is located on a different continent. 

1. AFRICA

Victoria Falls

 

Africa itself is an incredible continent that has more activities and sights to see than just one holiday or trip can include. So, we've got for you the most spectacular waterfall of them all. Look no further than the renowned and enormous Victoria Falls, located on the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe. This is one of the region's top tourist attractions so if you're looking for an absolutely breathtaking view, this one is for you! 


2. ASIA

Kawasan Waterfalls, Philippines

If you haven't seen this pristine view across your Instagram feed at some point in time, then here it is! Commonly known as "The Gatorade Lagoon" for it's glowing aqua blue water similar to the blue Gatorade bottle. This waterfall certainly isn't the biggest waterfall in South East Asia but it certainly is (in our opinion) one of the most beautiful!

TIP: It is rather busy on the weekends as it is known as a popular spot to visit, so try to venture there during off-peak times of the week. 


3. ANTARCTICA

Blood Falls in Antarctica


If your bucket list involves a bunch of obscure and unique places to visit, then this next one is just for you! Blood falls in Antarctica is located on Taylor Glacier and acts not only as a waterfall but also a spraying geyser.

This waterfall is blood red and erupts sporadically if that just isn't impressive enough for you, then you'll be interested to know that the water flowing from the waterfall comes from an underwater lake that lies 400 meters below the earth's surface. The lake's water contains no oxygen, so once it emerges to the surface, the chemical reaction between the above oxygen surface and iron within the submerged water causes the waterfall to flow with a blood red color. 


4. Australia

Blencoe Falls


Now we can't leave out the homeland of RearViz. The Blencoe Falls are located in the Girringun National Park, Australia, with a jaw-dropping cascade of over 90 meters. This national park contains tones of nature walks and viewpoints where you can hike between 800 meters and 9km to see the everlasting beauty of this waterfall. 

5. Europe

Plitvice Lakes National Park

 


Europe is the continent with many waterfalls, which makes it almost impossible to pick just one! So this is one of our top picks for Europe, and from the photo, you can see just why. Located in Croatia, the Plitvice Lakes National Park is a wonderland of cascading waterfalls year round. Due to sinkholes and other surface breakdowns, it streams through 16 lakes. 

There are walking trails and boardwalks throughout the national park, so with a little bit of a hike, I'm sure you'll find the best view of this beauty! Again, this waterfall is rather popular over the summer months, but if you pick the right off-peak time, you might even have the place to yourself! 

 

6. North America

Niagara Falls




After asking friends, family and even social media outlet's we've come to the conclusion, Niagara Falls in North America just cannot be beaten. Located on the Boarder of Northern New York and Southern Ontario this waterfall spans not one but two countries (Canada and Northern America). As one of the top tourist places known around the world Niagara Falls is a category of its own. If it isn't already a the top of your bucket list then after seeing this video clip I'm sure it will be at the top of your list. 


7. South America


Iguazu Falls in South America


During the times of land discovery and exploration, waterfalls were used as a reference point for mapping borders of countries due to their primary location on the edging borders of countries around the world. 

With that being said, here is the amazing Iguazu Falls in South America making up part of the border between Argentina and Brazil. Cascading across over 2.7 kilometers with over 275 separate cascades known, this waterfall is truly one you cannot miss. 

So now we have made our Top Seven List of Cascading Waterfalls Across Seven Continents, it's now your turn to explore and judge our list for yourself!
