Dangers of Waterfalls

The World Waterfall Database is intended as a source of documentation and a repository for information regarding waterfalls, and is not intended to be utilized as a field guide. The World Waterfall Database makes no guarantees to the accuracy of the information presented. Waterfalls are inherently dangerous locations, and the World Waterfall Database can not assume or guarantee your personal safety when visiting a waterfall.

Private Property

The World Waterfall Database may feature information about waterfalls located partially or entirely within privately held property.

Such cases are not a legal justification for visitation of these locations. The World Waterfall Database can not grant permission for visitation to waterfalls found on privately held property. Further, we do not condone visiting waterfalls on privately held property without first consulting the land owners, and ask that those seeking out waterfalls which may be found on privately held property be courteous and respectful of the land owner's rights.

Private Landowners - if you see information on this website which does not accurately or clearly identify that a waterfall found on your property is not publicly accessible, please let us know and we will make the appropriate changes.
