Bishop Falls
   British Columbia, Canada

This waterfall has been confirmed by the World Waterfall Database, has been mapped and its height has been approximated but exact measurements have not yet been confirmed.
Bishop Falls is a massive horsetailing waterfall that drops out of a lofty hanging valley into the broad Taku River Valley in the northwest corner of British Columbia. The falls are only accessible by either boat or airplane and are only about 20 miles from Juneau, Alaska. Based on the very few pictures we've seen of this waterfall, this could easily be one of the most impressive waterfalls in all of British Columbia, standing toe to toe with the likes of Takakkaw Falls and Helmet Falls, among others, and makes the list of the worlds 100 best.
