Shoshone Falls

Shoshone Falls 4

Shoshone Falls on the Snake River,  also known as the “Niagara of the West”  is located approximately 5 miles east of  the city of Twin Falls, Idaho.  With its  212 feet height, this waterfall is 45 feet higher than Niagara Falls.  

The best time to visit Shoshone Falls is during spring and early summer when the water is overflowing.  I and my husband visited this waterfall in early September, when the water flow was depleted.  But the view remained spectacular and breathtaking.

Airterjun Shoshone  di Snake River yang dikenal juga sebagai “Niagara Barat”,  terletak sekitar  5 mil dari kota Twin Falls, Idaho.  Dengan ketinggiannya yang mencapai 64,7 meter, air terjun ini lebih tinggi  14 meter  dibandingkan Air terjun Niagara

Waktu paling tepat untuk mengunjungi tempat ini adalah pada musim semi hingga awal musim panas, pada saat aliran sungai dari salju  yang mencair berlimpah.  Saya dan suami mengunjungi tempat ini pada awal September, ketika debit air sudah berkurang untuk irigasi.  Namun pemandangannya masih tetap memukau.
