Some people love the mountains and others are into oceans and waterfalls. If you belong to the latter category, Blue Nile Falls in Ethiopia is a must boast spot for you. Located on the Blue Nile river, it is also known as ‘Tis Abay' or the ‘Great Smoke'. The name is totally justified as the falls stretch to almost a qualifier of a mile and drop into a mist that is over 150 feet deep. Such a vision with smoky mists and vivid rainbows creates a mysterious effect to the naked eyes that simply should not be missed.
Once you have quenched your thirst for the heavenly appearance of the Blue Nile Falls, you may want to take a hike up the forest where monkeys and exotic birds build their homes. There is also a stone bridge located at a short distance from the stream where you can stand to witness the view from a different perspective.
