Spread the word

These ten strangest waterfalls are very rare and still unknown to many people. Mother Nature is amazing. She created some weird, unique waterfalls all over the world. Some are so unique and unusual that they provoke disbelief and leave people in awe.

A waterfall is a river of water, melted ice, or other body of water that falls over rocky edges and plunge in pools of water. The process of erosion plays an essential part in the formation of waterfalls. Waterfalls are also known as cascades.

Some waterfalls may be temporary and flow only during rainstorms or when there is a significant amount of melted snow. The bottom of a waterfall is called a plunge pool, basin, or waterfall lake.
