On South Island, just off the coast of New Zealand, this gorgeous waterfall draws attention. It is situated very close to Milford Sound, a beautiful place in its own right. Until Browne Falls was discovered, this waterfall was believed to be the tallest waterfall in New Zealand (it cascades water down cliffs that are almost two thousand feet in the air). Three different cascades of water make up Sutherland Falls. The water falls over a mean grade of 56 degrees. This one is definitely worth seeing.

Chile, a country in South America, holds this wondrous beauty. Most of the waterfalls in Chile are virtually unknown. However, the World Waterfall Database holds this one as being one of the best in the entire world. The most impressive feature of this gorgeous waterfall? The water springs from beneath Hanging Glacier, and the bottom third of the waterfall is hidden beneath another glacier. With global warming, it is predicted that more of this waterfall will be seen in the coming decades.

This beautiful waterfall lies at the border of Zambia and Zimbabwe in southern Africa. It is a valuable asset to the Zambezi River. Another name for Victoria Falls is Tokaleya Tonga. It means "The Smoke that Thunders." It's obvious where this name came from. Look at the beautiful mists created by the cascading water.

On the Potaro River in Guyana lies this magnificent waterfall. It is located within the national park of the same name. 822 feet is not necessarily very tall when it comes to the greatest waterfalls in the world. However, Kaieteur Falls is deemed one of the best because of its combination of height and volume of water discharge. It's a combination that makes the waterfall very powerful.

We move now to southwestern Iceland for yet another waterfall. This one, known as Gullfoss, comes from the Hvítá River and falls into a canyon. The waterfall is one of the country's greatest tourist attractions. Like its sister, Dettifoss, Gullfoss is a part of a tourist tour through southwestern Iceland. While Dettifoss is a part of the Diamond Circle, Gullfoss is a part of the Golden Circle. The waterfall is famously depicted on an album for the British band Echo and the Bunnymen.
