Some of the best waterfalls in Asia

1. The Nachi Falls in India

The Nachi Falls is claimed to be the highest waterfall in Japan at 133m. The waterfall is beautified with shrines, pagoda, and temples; reason to all these is due to the belief that the Nachi waterfall is a holy place in that particular area.  You’ll get to enjoy an awesome view from the top of the cliff.

2. Nohkalikai Falls in India


The Nohkalikai Falls is one of the tallest waterfalls in India. According to a legend, a woman named Ka Likai remarried. But, her new husband was jealous of her love for her daughter. While Ka Likai was out working, her new husband killed her daughter and cooked her flesh into a meal. Her husband didn’t tell her the truth and before she went out, she decided to eat. After eating, she found her daughter’s fingers in the betel-nut basket. In despair, Ka Likai threw herself off this cliff giving the falls its name: “Fall of Ka Likai”

3. The Huangguoshu Waterfall in China


The Huangguoshu Waterfall, which means “Yellow Fruit Tree Waterfall”, is perhaps one of China’s most famous waterfalls; many people love to visit this place since it is also one of the biggest waterfalls in the country. Situated 45km southwest of Anshun City, this waterfall is classified as a AAAAA scenic aread by the China National Tourism Administration. Sometimes, if you’re lucky, you’ll get to see beautiful rainbows that appear in the mist above the Rhinoceros Pool near the falls.

 4. The Mae Ya Waterfall


The Mae Ya Waterfall is one of the beautiful waterfalls in Thailand, making it as the pride of the Chiang Mai province. It’s big, about 260m tall and up to 100m wide. The Mae Ya waterfall is about 14km from the Chorn Thong Village. People spend good times with their families here and they can also choose to go to the shallow pool at the bottom of the natural landmark. There are parking lots for you if you wish to park your car.

5. The Unchalli Falls in India
