Niagara Falls forms the border between America's New York state and Canada's province of Ontario. The waterfall is shared according to a treaty between the two countries in 1950 and Niagara Falls is the most famous waterfall in the world. Niagara consists of 3 waterfalls, two falls flow in America and one fall branches and flows into Canada.
The rest of the waterfall flows into America from a height of 60 meters and with installed power plants designed by Nikola Tesla, it is an important source of electricity for North America. In addition to the magnificent views of the waterfalls, one of their most impressive features is that it is the only waterfall that flows backwards in the world. This happens when the water hitting the stones gains recirculation and this is described as one of the most interesting natural events.

It is believed that the waterfall brought good luck among the people due to its horseshoe shaped appearance.
