The Most Powerful Falls in the World

 

Murchison Falls – the most Powerful Waterfall in the World is Uganda’s spectacular, scenic wonders. It is the Most Powerful Waterfalls in the World.

Murchison Falls, also known as Kabalega Falls, is a  waterfall between Lake Kyoga and Lake Albert on the Victoria Nile in Uganda.  At the top of Murchison Falls, the Nile forces its way through a gap in the rocks, only 7 m (23 ft) wide, and tumbles 43 m (141 ft), before flowing westward into Lake Albert. The outlet of Lake Victoria sends around 300 cubic meters per second (11,000 ft³/s) of water over the falls, squeezed into a gorge less than 10 m (33 ft) wide.

Some historians suggest that in 61 AD  Roman legionaries reached the Murchison Falls, but there is a major controversy about this very difficult achievement.

Samuel Baker and Florence Baker  were the first Europeans who definitely sighted them. Baker named them after Roderick Murchison , the President of the Royal Geographical Society.  The falls lend their name to the surrounding Murchison Falls National Park.

During the regime of Idi Amin  in the 1970s, the name was changed to Kabalega Falls, after the Omukama  (King) Kabalega of Bunyoro , although this was never legally promulgated. The name reverted to Murchison Falls following the downfall of Amin. It is still sometimes referred to as Kabalega Falls. BBC

Ernest Hemingway crashed a plane just downriver from Murchison Falls in 1954. In August 2019, Uganda rejected a hydropower project by South Africa’s Bonang Power and Energy in order to preserve the Falls, one of the country’s most lucrative tourism sites.
