Gullfoss Waterfall is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The wide Hvita River, South Iceland, which originates from Langjökull Glacier, rushes southward, and about a kilometre above the falls it turns sharply to the right and flows down into a wide curved three-step “staircase” and then abruptly plunges in two stages (11 metres or 36 feet, and 21 metres or 69 feet) into a crevice 32 metres (105 ft) deep.
