Just 3 miles east of Twin Falls, lies Shoshone Falls, often referred to as the Niagara of the West. At 212 feet tall, Shoshone Falls is among the most spectacular of the natural beauties found along the Snake River and the falls are 45 feet higher than Niagara Falls. Shoshone Falls are best viewed during the spring and early summer, as the water flows are usually at their highest – dependent upon winter snow melt. Irrigation diversion of the Snake River can significantly diminish water flow over Shoshone Falls in the summer and fall, especially during dry years. However, even when water flow is not at its highest, the views at Shoshone Falls are breath taking and spectacular all the year round.
