Waterfalls are one of nature’s most beautiful attractions and there are tons of them to visit all around the world. If you want an experience that’s not as touristy, waterfall hikes are the way to go. Not only will you enjoy picturesque waterfalls, but you’ll get some exercise along the way. When it comes to waterfall hikes, don’t miss these three around the world.

Baatara Gorge Waterfall, Lebanon

Also known as the Cave of Three Bridges, the Baatara Gorge Waterfall is just a short walk from the village of Mgharet al-Ghaouaghir. The best time to see the waterfall is in the spring when the ice is melting off the peaks. The gorge alone is a great reason to visit the waterfalls.

Fairy Pools, Scotland

The clear, cobalt-blue Fairy Pools in Scotland’s Isle of Skye are a sight to be seen and the hike to reach the first main waterfall and pool to this attraction is about one and a half miles round-trip.

Gocta Waterfall, Peru

One of the tallest waterfalls in the world, Gocta is located in the Amazonas region of northern Peru. There are a few ways to get to the waterfall, but the easiest is to hike from the village of Cocachimba, which is about six miles round-trip.
