Niagara Whirlpool – Another Natural Phenomenon

A view to Niagara Whirlpool

In addition to Niagara Falls, a particular interest to tourists is also the natural phenomenon Niagara Whirlpool, located on the border between Canada and the United States. The Whirlpool is located downstream after the waterfalls and has a depth of about 38 meters. Its creation is a consequence of water erosion and the speed of running water.

The direction of movement is also an interesting topic. In normal flow, it is counterclockwise, but when more water is released from the hydroelectric power plants, the direction is turned clockwise.

Niagara Whirlpool has formed approximately 4200 years ago.

There is a great tourists interest in the Whirlpool and two nature parks have been created around it-The Whirlpool State Park, which is located on the American shore, and the Niagara Glen Nature Reserve on the Canadian side.

Above the Whirlpool there is a cable car lift – Whirlpool Aero Car, which offers unforgettable proximity to the attraction and amazing views. It connects two points on the Canadian coast, but in fact, the people in it cross the Canadian-American border as they move.

The Niagara Whirlpool is another natural phenomenon of the area that is worth to be seen.
