Witnessing a waterfall is truly an exceptional experience.
That feeling of relishing the views of crystal clear water traveling over robust rocks and falling gracefully into the underlying pool, is utterly special.
And although ranking of best waterfalls is completely subjective based on one's experience- some are a notch above the rest.
Here, we list five of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world.
