Guess Three Most Beautiful Waterfalls in Asia!

MSN, a popular web portal, has recently published their version of the most beautiful waterfalls in the world. Not only Niagara and Angel are included: some impressive cascades are found in Asia, too. 

Vietnam & China: Ban Gioc-Detian Falls
Shared by the two countries, these waterfalls are located in Cao Bang province of Vietnam and Guangxi province of China and are often believed to be the Asia's largest natural falls. Fed by the Quy Xuan River, Ban Gioc-Detian Falls is at its best between May and September. There is Nguom Ngao cave system on the Vietnam side – it is well worth exploring.

India: Jog Falls
Jog Falls in Karnataka features four chutes and measures 250 m what makes this waterfall one of the tallest in India. Rainbows are often formed at Jog Falls. Come to check it between August and December.

Philippines: Tinago Falls
Tinago Falls is on Mindanao island in Iligan City – and indeed, waterfalls are the main attraction of Iligan – there are 23 falls here in total. Not that tall – only 75 m – Tinago Falls emerging from the dense jungly and falling freely into an emerald pool is spectacular. A 500-steps hike leads to the top of the cascade.
