Miruša Waterfalls / Serbia

Miruša waterfalls (Мируша); located on the Miruša river, a tributary to the White Drin, in the Metohija region of Serbia. The river carved a 10 kilometers long canyon and created 13 river lakes with waterfalls between them, earning the name "Plitvice of Metohija". The highest waterfall, between the sixth and seventh lake, is 22 meters high.

Iguazú falls


The waterfall system consists of 275 falls along 2.7 kilometers (1.67 miles) of the Iguazu River. Some of the individual falls are up to 82 meters (269 ft) in height, though the majority are about 64 metres (210 ft). The Devil's Throat, a U-shaped, 82-meter-high, 150-meter-wide and 700-meter-long (490 by 2300 feet) cataract, is the most impressive of all, and marks the border between Argentina and Brazil. Two thirds of the falls are within Argentine territory. The edge of the basalt cap recedes only 3 mm (0 in) per year. The water of the lower Iguazu collects in a canyon that drains into the Paraná River at Argentina, shortly downstream from the Itaipu dam.

VIRGINIA FALLS, NAHANNI NATIONAL PARK, NORTHWEST TERRITORIES, CANADA:

From Spectacular NWT (NWT Tourism):

At over 90 metres, twice the height of Niagara Falls, Nailicho, or Virginia Falls on the South Nahanni River in Nahanni National Park Reserve is a symbol of wild Nahanni Country.

Around 1,000 visitors make the pilgrimage to the Nahanni each year, by canoe or raft, or on day trips from nearby communities. River trippers can spend up to three weeks on the river, and must portage around the towering falls. They re-launch their boats below the thundering drop.

Day trippers fly in and land in floatplanes on the river above the falls. They can hike the boardwalk and portage route to photograph spectacular scenery.
The national park has been enlarged from 4,765 square kilometres to around 30,000 square kilometres to protect the area from oil and gas boom expected for the Mackenzie corridor in the near future.

The rock between the falls is called "Mason's Rock".

Very impressive the Virginia Falls. :eek:

I know some Argentineans hate this, but you have to live with the fact that Iguazu is shared with Brazil, no matter if you have a larger part of it. And the best panorama view can be seen only on Brazilian side...

Rodrigo, ¿what is the problem that part of the falls are in the brazilian side?
I dont have problem about it, ¿what did you say that?, i didnt say anything about it.
Anyway the great majority of the iguazú falls are in the argentinian side, that is just the reallity.
In the brazilian side you have a great panoramic view of the argentinian side (of course), it belongs to Argentina anyway, but viewed from the brazilian side.

In the argentinian side you have fantastic views too and a lot of kind of views, just look the photos. . In fact the best view in my opinion is in the argentinian side... this is the best in my opinion:








Here is the border...

Jajaja We just are showing our part and saying some information from wikipedia it`s a simple fact, we didn`t say our opinion. And honestly, I don`t know you but I prefer see The Devil's Throat and the whole "waterfall system" from inside, not from a distance of 100 meters or more.
Bye brother
