Niagara Falls

“Maid of the Mist” Boat . . . See the rainbow!

Niagara Falls is one of those MUST SEE sights when travelling to US and Canada – a natural wonder of the world. What you conjured in your mind or imagined from all the geography lessons of old, travel journals, pictures or videos cannot match the actual experience of your being there physically. It is awesome, breathtaking, magnificent, magical, majestic, stupendous, spectacular or if there’s any other word or adjective that I might describe it better.



Niagara Falls is the collective name for three waterfalls that straddle the international border between the Canadian province of Ontario and the U.S. state of New York. From largest to smallest, the three waterfalls are the Horseshoe Falls, the American Falls and the Bridal Veil Falls, forming the southern end of the Niagara Gorge.

More than 6 million cubic feet (168,000 m3) of water falls over the crest line every minute in high flow, and almost 4 million cubic feet (110,000 m3) on average.

You can take as many pictures or videos from the look-out point. But really to get the thrills & spills and being close to the falls, you must get on the “Maid of the Mist” boat. You will cruise close to the falls dressed with a thin blue rain-coat to prevent you from getting wet.

You can’t begin to imagine the roar & force of nature, the perpetual mist, splash & spray, often enhanced by the appearance of rainbow. It’s raising up your adrenaline level . . . you can’t stand or sit still!

For the romantics, you can lunch & dine in style from the Skylon Tower while taking in the breathless scene of the Horseshoe Falls in all its splendour. In fact, there are a host of other top restaurants offering both tempting menus & sights.

God’s greatness is everywhere!
