 The water falls so far that it becomes a fine mist which can be felt a mile away before it reaches the ground below. These falls reach more than twenty six hundred feet up, and they are roughly fifteen times as high as Niagara Falls. The longest continuous drop in the falls is over eight hundred meters.
