Niagara Falls, Buffalo

(Travel Period : 6th July - 7th July 2009)

Niagara Falls - The Niagara River, as is the entire Great Lakes Basin of which the river is an integral part, is a legacy of the last Ice Age. Niagara Falls are voluminous waterfalls, straddling the international border between Canada province of Ontario and U.S.A of New York. Composed of 2 major sections seperated by Goat Island : Horseshoe Falls (Canada) and American Falls (U.S.A). Situated just 20 minutes from Buffalo International Airport and an hour from the Toronto area.
Buffalo neighbourhood - Wanderwall Hostel.
Ontario, CanadaAt Observatory Deck
Maid Of Mist - take you to the base of the American Falls and then to the basin of Horseshoe Falls, through the crashing waters and massive rock formations. Water rushes all around us and soak with excitement! We love the ride - my best ride EVER ! A real historical ride aboard the world-famous Maid of the Mist is a half hour thrill of a lifetime! A-must-ride XD
American Falls
Horseshoe Falls
Wind Of Cave - takes you closer to the waters of Niagara Falls than you thought possible. You ride an elevator 175 feet (53 meters) deep into the Niagara Gorge. Then, clad in a bright yellow poncho and wearing the special footwear provided, a tour guide over a series of wooden walkways to the famous "Hurricane Deck". As you stand at the railing, you are a mere 20 feet (6 meters) from the billowing torrents of Bridal Veil Falls. The rushing waters loom above you, dousing you with a generous spray as you face the thundering Falls head-on. Rainbows are usually visible day and night. Unfortunately, it was raining late afternoon, thus we ended up NOT experiencing this.
A magnificent view from Terrapin Point.Also dinner at Terrapin Point - Garden Burger, very special and delicious !Our best tour in U.S.A so far ! ! !

Next up Los Angeles, California.

Yeah! Its better seen from Toronto because you can see the full-curve of Horseshoe Falls! Thats the only difference I guess haha LOL =p

But Canada has no Cave Of Wind, substituted by Journey Behind The Falls, so I think you must go over to the American side too! Just walk across the bridge.

I did not apply for Canada visa, never thought of it till I reach there! But Its okay, will have chance to visit again :)
