No portfolio of a nature photographer is complete with capturing the majestic beauty of waterfalls. The rush of water pouring into an emerald pool surrounded by greenery is the stuff that inspires zen gardens and nature walks. Whatâ€™s best about these waterfalls in Asia is the occurrence of the monsoon season, when torrential rains turn the surge of water into a glorious spectacle ofÂ natureâ€™s fury.
Here are nine Asian Waterfalls to admire during your travels.
Shiraito Falls – the most famous waterfall in Japan, located in the lower slopes of Mount Fuji. Shiraito has been proclaimed as one of the most scenic waterfalls in the country. The best time to visit is during autumn, when the leaves in the enclosing forest are starting to change color.
Pagsanjan Falls – one of the big thrills of this falls in the Philippines is the journey by traditional bancas. A boatman will paddle, push, and shove his boatload of passengers past rocks, curves, and the current to reach the destination, then repeat the performance on the way back. The base of the falls is a large pool where people can swim, bathe, and enjoy themselves. There is also a cave behind the falls for exploring.
