Jog Falls, India
The Jog falls, located on the Shimoga and North Kanara borders, is the tallest waterfall in India. It is hidden in the emerald forests which are 16km away from the Talguppa, in the Shimoga district of the province of Karnataka.
The Monsoons bring out its force and beauty, as the torrents and currents of the powerful Jog Falls create beautiful rainbows and mesmerizing sights of clear flowing water, spraying visitors with its power. Tourists can also take a hike along the bottom, where the gates of the Linganamakki dams stay closed.
However, to truly enjoy its grace and gentle beauty, tourists are advised to visit the Job Waterfalls during the winter months, when the cold has calmed it down somewhat. The sky is a clear blue, with an absence of mist, and the water drops in a single flow, without streaming on the rocks. The Jog Waterfalls are located at a distance of 379 km from the famous city of Bangalore.
Yosemite Falls, United States of America
Located in California, the Yosemite Falls are a part of the Yosemite National Park. It is the highest waterfall in all of North America and indeed, one of the highest in the world, at a height of 2,425 feet and is thus compared to the Victoria Falls and the Niagara Falls.
The Yosemite Falls are created out of three distinct drops. The Upper Yosemite cascades 1430 feet, the middle of the fall is at the height of 675 feet, while the Lower Yosemite punges 320 feet. The three separate drops are made by melted snow, and as most of the snow melts in the summers, during the April-June period, it is considered as the best time to visit the Yosemite Falls
