Niagara falls present to you one of the most awe inspiring views you would have ever seen or will see anywhere else. Situated on the Niagara River, Niagara Falls plunge from a height of 171 meters and pushes out an average 110000m3 water every minute. And during high falls, it easily crosses the 168000m3 mark. Being one of the strongest waterfalls in North America, they also are a valuable source of hydroelectricity. The best time to visit Niagara falls is during summers when the water level is at maximum. After dark, the falls are floodlit till midnight. The view of the illuminated falls is simply breathtaking. The main highlight of the falls is the Maid of The Mist boat cruise that has been taking passengers to whirlpools beneath the falls since a long time now.
