Waterfalls can be dangerous. While it is impossible to get all sources to agree completely, there are a number of waterfalls that appear on almost every list.

The Top 10 Most Dangerous Waterfalls On Earth

Victoria Falls can be found on the border between Zambia and Zimbabwe. It is also known as Mosi-oa-Tunya or “The Bank that Thunders” and Shungu Namutitima or “Boiling Water.” Some sources argue it is the world’s most dangerous waterfall.  

While it isn’t the widest or the highest, it is still designated the largest based on its combined height of 108 meters (354 feet) and width of 1,708 meters (5,604 feet). It is more than twice as wide as Niagara Falls and almost twice as high. If you stand too close, your body will actually tremble.
