Mingo Falls and Upper Mingo Falls Professional Review and Guide
"Mingo Falls, located on the Cherokee Indian Reservation, is a most impressive sight. Although Mingo Falls is one of the highest waterfalls in the area, dropping 120 feet, this is not the only feature that sets it apart from other falls. The water seems to fall in slow motion. This surreal effect is created by the stratified sandstone ledges, hundreds of tiny stairsteps in the rock face that slow the water."
