Although the falls are not particularly high, they have the the highest flow rate of any waterfall in the world with a peak flow of nearly six million cubic feet per minute. The video was shot as an entry to the DJI Phantom Video Contest, the results of which will be announced at the end of this month. Read more over on PetaPixel.
