Sure, vacationing in cities is fun. Depending on your destination, there may be a lot of culture, livelihood and activities. But many times, visiting a cosmopolitan area is less exploration, and more chaos and people. It's not nearly as relaxing as a vacation should be.

Sometimes you just need a break from your busy life -- a breath of fresh air, some greens and drop dead gorgeous views. Furthermore, there are only a handful of places on earth that are untouched, but inspire such exploration and wonder. Waterfalls are one of them.
