List of Waterfalls in India

A waterfall is an area where water flows vertically from some height. It flows in the form of a drop or a series of steep drops. Waterfalls can have an immense area of widths and depths. Waterfalls can occur along the edge of a glacial crib, where a stream or river flowing into a glacier continues to flow into a valley after the glacier has receded or melted. The huge waterfalls in Yosemite Valley are examples of this phenomenon, which is referred to as a hanging valley. Tourists from all over the world visit India to see these waterfalls. The beautiful view can make people spend hours watching the free flow of spouting water in the lap of Mother Nature. The following is a list of waterfalls in India by height. This data is based on the World Waterfall Database.
