There’s no denying the beauty of waterfalls. No matter how large or small, there is something quite mesmerizing about water cascading down the side of a cliff or mountain. These natural geological formations have become popular tourist attractions across the globe. But how do you measure the size of a waterfall? Is it how tall it is? How wide? Or how much water flows per second? Whichever measure you use, the world's biggest waterfalls are truly awe-inspiring.


10. Victoria Falls

Affectionately known as Vic Falls, many consider this impressive waterfall to be the largest in the world. However, as we have seen, it’s not the highest, nor the widest, nor the biggest in volume. Situated on the Zambezi river, Vic Falls is located on the border between Zimbabwe and Zambia. At 5,604 feet wide and 354 feet tall, it's still an impressive size. But what Victoria Falls may lack in height and width, it makes up for in its breathtaking beauty.
