There’s nothing quite as mesmerising as standing in complete awe in front of one of Mother Nature’s most astonishing creations. Of all these, waterfalls would have to be one of the most fascinating by far. Whether they’re cascading from vertiginous peaks in colossal amounts like Iguazu Falls in Brazil, tunnelling their way through layers upon layers of limestone, like Lebanon’s Baatara Falls, or hidden from the world in a mystical landscape like Hierve el Agua in Mexico, waterfalls have a way of hypnotising us like nothing else on earth. Although some of the world’s most majestic falls attract millions each year, there are plenty more that are equally splendid yet much less known and gift the chance to enjoy an unforgettable sight in complete aloneness.
