Have you ever taken a moment to appreciate the wonders of nature? It’s truly amazing—right? One of the most beautiful attractions are waterfalls and to truly appreciate them you should take a waterfall hike. These three waterfall hikes around the world are some of the most picturesque spots you’ll ever see.

Baatara Gorge Waterfall, Lebanon

Just a short walk from the village of Mgharet al-Ghaouaghir is the Baatara Gorge Waterfall, also known as the Cave of Three Bridges. Make sure to visit during the spring so you can see ice melting off the peaks of the waterfall.

Fairy Pools, Scotland

Located in Scotland’s Isle of Skye are the Fairy Pools which have clear, cobalt-blue water. The hike round-trip to reach the first main waterfall and pool is only about one and a half miles.

Gocta Waterfall, Peru

Gocta Waterfall located in the Amazonas region of northern Peru is one of the tallest waterfalls in the world and there are a few different ways to get there depending on how extreme you want your hike to be.
