The Horseshoe Falls, also known as Canadian Falls, is the most famous part of the Niagara Falls. About 90% of the water of the Niagara River flows over the Horseshoe Falls, while about 10% flows over the American Falls. The name 'horseshoe waterfall' comes from the semicircular shape that this waterfall has. This part of the Niagara Falls is on the border between the United States and Canada, for the most part on Canadian territory, to be more precise between Terrapin Point on Goat Island in the state of New York and Table Rock House in Ontario.
The Horseshoe Falls is 671 meters wide. In the middle of the Horseshoe Falls the water is about 3 meters deep and passes the edge of the waterfall with 32 km / h. The height of the waterfall is 53 meters. The depth of the river at the foot of the falls is even more than the height of the waterfall, which is estimated at 56 meters.
Goat Island is located between Horseshoe Falls and the two other waterfalls. Two bridges above the waterfalls connect the island with the American side. (source Wikipedia)
