Tucked away within Holland Park, the Kyoto Garden is more than 50 acres of beautiful, authentic Japanese landscaping, a gift from Kyoto to London in the early 1990s. From the waterfalls to the resident peacocks, koi ponds to stone accents, it’s positively gorgeous any time of year. © Exflow | Dreamstime.com

Tips / Destination

Asia does not come to mind when considering the great waterfalls of the world. Victoria Falls in Africa, Iguazu Falls in South America, and Niagara Falls in North America all seem to outshine the falls in Asia, but the continent is not left out when it comes to waterfalls.

 

Jog Falls

The Jog Falls are the second-highest falls in India. The falls are segmented most of the time, but depending on the time of the year and the amount of recent rainfall, the waterfall becomes a plunge waterfall, where the water picks up the pace and careens over the ledge.

 

The falls are a major tourist attraction in India and are ranked as 13th in the world, according to the waterfall database.

 

Kuang Si Falls

This Laos waterfall is three-leveled, beginning with shallow pools that fall into separate bodies before arriving at the 60-meter main drop. The falls often act as a side attraction for tourists visiting Luang Prabang.

 

This well-maintained waterfall empties into a turquoise pool visible on well-maintained walkways and facilities.

 

Chitrakote Falls

The widest falls in India only boast a drop of about 29 meters.

 

The falls are especially incredible to view during monsoon season, when the spread and force of the falls are emboldened. During this time, the falls are often called the “Niagara Falls of India.”

 

Hogenakkal Falls

Another set of falls sometimes referred to as the “Niagara Falls of India,” this one looks much more akin to Iguazu Falls. The falls offer full viewing amenities, including boat rides.

 

The falls are projected as a major tourist attraction in India and are home to some of the oldest carbonatite rocks in Asia.

 

Ryuzu Falls

The Ryuzu Falls’ name translates to “dragon head” due to the shape and flow of the two falls that make up the formation.

 

Located in Japan, the falls make their way into lakes Yunoko and Chuzenji.
