Gorman Falls, Texas
Angel Falls, Venezuela (also called Salto Angel) is the Earth’s highest uninterrupted waterfall. It is 979 metres (3,230 feet) tall – think of it as 2.5 times as tall as the Empire State Building and a full 15 times higher than Niagara Falls.

Josephine Falls are placed around the foot from the southern face of Mount Bartle Frere in the Wooroonooran National Park, in Queensland, Australia. This falls are really a well-known adventure site among residents because the water flows on the huge rock to create a natural waterslide. Josephine Falls are placed on Josephine Creek, a tributary of the Russell River.
ARIZONA - Located on the Havasupai Indian Reservation in Grand Canyon National Park, Havasu Falls stand 120 feet high. The falls claims one of America’s most beautiful campgrounds and backpacking area. For example, beneath the falls lies billowing cottonwoods under 400-foot rock walks which, along with the falling water, creates a striking lullaby for campers.
A visit to the falls entails more than just a long drive, however. Once visitors are at Hualapai Hilltop, the journey really begins. Visitors must endure a 10-mile hike from the hilltop to the falls. While the first 1.5 miles is a steep decent down to the bottom of Hualapai Canyon (a trek that you must make back up on your way home), the rest of the hike is mostly flat. Tourists will hike 6.5 more miles to the Hualapai village, followed by 2 more miles to the campground.

Mossbrae Falls is one of the more scenic waterfalls in California. Approximately 50 ft (15 m) in height and150 ft (46 m) wide, the falls are fed by springs, which course down the canyon wall, and into the Sacramento River, creating the effect of many waterfall streams falling into the river. The entire course of the falls is longer than 50 ft (15 m), however the upper cascades cannot be observed through flora which covers the mountainside.
