The Krimml Waterfalls ( May 2014 )

The Krimml Waterfalls are the highest in Europe
Here we can see the entire falls, a drop of over 380 meters

The path up the falls begins in a forested area as part of the High Tauern National Park

John is enjoying the first of 3 main segments of the falls

There is a split between the first and second segments

The path beside the falls was first created in 1879

The Krimml Waterfalls is the 5th highest in the world

At this time of the year, May, the waterflow is around 20,000 meters cubed per hour
