Waterfall pics are a popular category on Instagram, which is why bathroom and shower specialist Showerstoyou has released a study on the most-Instagrammed waterfalls around the world. The company compiled the list by collating the number of hashtags per waterfall. Here’s how they stack up, along with the number of hashtags for each: 

  1. Niagara Falls – 3,008,732
  2. Iguazú Falls – 343,037
  3. Multnomah Falls – 261,020
  4. Victoria Falls – 236,117
  5. Gullfoss – 234,512
  6. Skógafoss – 218,094
  7. Yosemite Falls – 170,215
  8. Seljalandsfoss – 139,668
  9. Havasu Falls – 130,208
  10. Bridalveil Falls – 127,020
  11. Snoqualmie Falls – 116,083
  12. Horseshoe Falls – 76,784
  13. Goðafoss – 73,659
  14. Dettifoss – 44,195
  15. Cascata delle Marmore – 39,140

  18. Jog Falls – 39,330
  19. Gocta Waterfall – 25,312
  20. Angel Falls – 22,440

While one of the smallest on the list by size at approximately 167 feet, Niagara Falls was by far the most popular waterfall on the list, accounting for over 3 million hashtags – nearly 10 times as many as the next-most popular, Iguazú Falls, which straddles the border between Argentina and Brazil. Interestingly, Niagara falls is so popular that one of its component waterfalls, Horseshoe Falls on the Canadian side, merited its own spot on the list, at number 12, with well over 76,000 hashtags of its own. 

The United States was the most popular country in terms of waterfalls on the list, accounting for seven spots – Niagara Falls, Multnomah Falls, Yosemite Falls, Bridalveil Falls, Snoqualmie Falls and Shoshone Falls. While much smaller, Iceland was the second-most popular, accounting for four waterfalls on the list.
