World's Tallest Waterfalls List Posted

For those of you who have followed the World of Waterfalls website, you might be well aware of my aversion to get into those "World's Tallest Waterfalls" lists because of the various inconsistencies, subjectiveness, and misinformation that's out there. So I always take such lists with a grain of salt and care more about scenic allure than statistics.

Nonetheless, I finally caved into the inquiries and demands to put out such a list of Top 10 Tallest Waterfalls in the World. But before you have a field day picking apart our list(s), we've put a couple of twists. First of all, the lists are based only on the waterfalls that we've personally visited. Second, if you're observant, you might notice I used the plural form of list. That's because there are two main criteria for "tallest" waterfalls that we've used - a) tallest in terms of cumulative height and b) tallest in terms of highest free leap.

So check them out and see what you think (after you're done watching the Super Bowl perhaps). I'm sure I've opened up Pandora's box for some serious debate on this topic...
