Waterfalls belong to the world’s most spectacular natural wonders. They form whenever a river or, more typically, a stream flows over a vertical drop. The drop usually occurs on the edge of steep mountains, but can also happen on icebergs or ice shelves. The following list ranks the highest waterfalls in the world. It is based on the total height measured from the most upper course of the waterfall to the lowest and final plunge pool.
