Jog Falls in India is the largest and the tallest waterfall in the country. It is comprised of four waterfalls named Raja, Roar, Rocket and Rani. The sight of these waterfalls during the monsoon season is just exhilarating, however the hydroelectric developments in the upstream robbed the beauty of these waterfalls during the rest of the season.

Aptly named as the most picturesque waterfall in China, perhaps in the whole Asia, Detian Waterfall is located in the Karst hills of Guangxi Province of China and in the district of Trung Khanh in Vietnam side. It is currently the 4th largest waterfall along a national boarder. It is a multi-tiered waterfall with a 30 meters water drop separated into 3 falls by rocks and trees.

Unchalli Falls at Karnataka, India is one of the most spectacular waterfalls in the country.

With a 74 meters height and 81 meters width, Huangguoshu Waterfall is regarded as one of China’s biggest waterfall.

Mae Ya Waterfall at the Doi Ithanon National Park is popular to its visitors because of the triangular cascade of its waters. Truly , a postcard-perfect sight that’s why most of the tourists who come to see Mae Ya always bring along a camera to capture the picturesque scenery.

If you love the wonderful view at the Mae Ya Waterfall, you’ll surely appreciate the beauty of Nohkalikai Falls which is located at the forgotten northeast corner of India. Its reliable flow plus the color of the cliff and the bright blue pool at its base entice tourists to come to this place for several times.

The peaceful setting and the laid back atmosphere of the Nachi Falls in Japan provides reason for tourists to purchase an airfare to Japan to see its exceptional beauty and indulge in the tranquility the place offers to its visitors. It is considered as the country’s tallest permanent vertical waterfall having 133 meters height. It is said that this waterfall is among the few where you can see a pagoda or from within a genuine old temple.

The towering 97 meter waterfall of Kegon Falls at Chuzenji –ko, Japan is known for its grandeur and setting. It has a forceful and tall cascade with spectacular sights from the different angle of the waterfall. Sightings of brilliant rainbows during the mornings are usual sights here.

Regarded as the “husband and wife waterfall” of Japan, Ginga and Ryusei Waterfalls is one of the most visited and photographed attraction in the Land of the Rising Sun. It is quite unusual to see two waterfalls tumble side by side being split by a giant rock. The scenery is just extraordinary with the lush surroundings backed by the snowy mountains at the wilderness of the Daisetsuzan’s backcountry.
