15 Awesome Waterfalls In Asia Worth Chasing For !

The world is a beautiful place, especially where nature has been left untouched to build its own empire. Waterfalls, for instance, are particularly beautiful and stunning works of art signed by Mother Nature, which is why we decided to create a list with the 15 most awesome waterfalls in ASIA worth chasing for !


1. ERAWAN FALLS – THAILAND

Erawan falls

The Erawan Falls consist of actually 7 waterfalls, each one higher up than the other. Every single waterfall forms pools of crystal clear water, bright turquoise in color. The path up to the last fall is quite demanding and takes a bit of time but it is sure worth it. You can swim in each one of the waterfalls but beware of the fish – they actually bite and nibble on your feet. And these species are bigger than the ones in those fancy fish spa aquariums. Make sure to take your hiking boots and set out early as this place can get pretty busy. – Philipp Dukatz


2.SILVER WATERFALL SAPA – VIETNAM

SAPA

Not only intrigued by the fresh cool atmosphere with mountains endlessly stretching, Sapa is also impressive with majestic and magic beauty of the waterfalls that the Creator favorably bestows for the region. Silver Waterfall has long been famous as one of the wonderful tourist attractions in Sapa. The waterfall falls down from the height of more than 100m.

Kuang Si Falls, or sometimes spelled Kuang Xi, is a three tier waterfall about 30km outside of Luang Prabang. Shallow pools form at the lower part which then leads to the main fall with a 60 meter cascade. You can climb to the top and actually cross over but it is steep and quite slippery. You can swim in most of the pools and one even features a swing which of course draws the biggest crowds. Same as with Erawan, this place gets busy. Make sure to be there as early as possible to enjoy a few moments of silence before the tours arrive. – Philipp Dukatz

From the view point on the hill opposite to the fall, it seems that water streamline passing through verdant valley and fall down from the cliff. The water is transparent and often form rainbow in bright sunny days. The water accumulated at the bottom is exuberant Emerald’s green in colour which is extremely soothing to eyes and invigorating indeed. The local belief behind the origin of the fall is really heart-rending posted in the hoarding at the right side crossing the entrance. Emerald is called “the stone of successful love” and the colour, one will see at bottom water truly justifies imperishable heart-felt love and affection of distressed Mother Likai for her daughter. – Ankita S

7. TAPPIYA FALLS, BATAD – PHILIPPINES

TAPPIYA

Tappiya Falls was probably one of the heaviest waterfalls I swam in. This massive fall is tugged away behind the Batad Ifugao Rice Terraces. Once in Batad, you can hike there on your own but be aware that the trail is very steep and can be treacherous. Before you can even see Tappiya Falls, you can already hear its roaring sound as massive amounts of water drop down from 30 meters above. The brute force of the waterfall creates a weather of its own. Wind and mist blowing everywhere. The current it creates is so strong that there is no way to make it close. With all that and its chilly waters, Tappiya Falls is a grim beauty of a waterfall which you won’t forget. – Philipp Dukatz

8. TAD ALANG WATERFALL – LAOS

14. SENDANG TIU WATERFALL-INDONESIA

Not going to lie, I was pretty exhausted when i finally got to Lombok since it took about four hours to get there. So when the hotel offered the choice of two waterfall tours, one an hour farther than the other, I was extremely close to picking the one closer by. BUT, they also insisted that the farther one, Sendang Tiu, was the best waterfall there was. So I went.Turns out Sendang was pretty awesome, and probably my favorite waterfall that I saw in Indonesia. It looks like there’s one big massive waterfall in the middle with ten smaller ones rushing down a dark stone wall, with bright green vines separating them like they were designed and maintained by a professional landscaper.It’s also a favorite amongst locals because you can actually swim in it. It’s cold, yes, and it’s slightly dangerous because you have to walk on slippery stones in rushing water to get to the base of it, but totally worth it because, who doesn’t want to swim under a waterfall? – Alyssa- Mylifeisamovie.com


15. MADAKARIPURA FALLS -INDONESIA

Hidden at the end of a deep valley in the foothills of the Tengger range, the Madakaripura Waterfalls is not to be missed when making a trip to Mt Bromo.
