Shoshone Falls is one of the most stunning natural beauties along the Snake River. At 212 feet, the falls are higher than Niagara Falls. The best time to view the falls is in the spring when water flows are high. Irrigation and dry weather can greatly reduce water over the falls in summer and fall.
