Niagara Falls

Magnificent Waterfalls

This majestic and intriguing geological natural wonder are among the most striking and biggest waterfalls in the world, renowned for its width, power and beauty.

The spectacular Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls: the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls, that straddle the international border between the Canadian province Ontario and the American state of New York. It is one of the most popular tourist attractions, visited by around 30 million people every year.

The Horseshoe Falls is the largest and most powerful and lies mostly on the Canadian side; the American Falls is entirely on the American side, separated by Goat Island; and the smaller Bridal Veil Falls, also on the American side is separated by Luna Island. With a vertical drop spanning more than 165 feet, Niagara Falls has the highest flow rate of any waterfall in world.

This geological wonder also function as one of the major source of hydro-power providers, producing large amounts of electricity to the state itself. In the mid 1890’s, Nikola Tesla, developed a system of alternating current (AC) which enabled power from Niagara Falls to be transmitted great distances. A monument dedicated to Nikola Tesla sits on Goat Island, and the Canadian statue has him standing atop a huge AC motor.

The wonder of the falls has intrigued many and has prompted daredevils to “conquer” the falls in various contraptions from wooden barrels to rubber balls.
