Location and Structure
The Impossible Falls are located in the southwest corner of the city of Kholinar, seemingly adjoining one of the windblades. Water flows down the Impossible Falls from tier to tier. Whether the Falls are a natural formation or manmade is uncertain, but it is said that when they are viewed from the correct angles the water seems to flow down the tiers and then back to the top.
A few months after they met the Parshendi on the Shattered Plains, King Gavilar Kholin and Highprince Dalinar Kholin visited the Impossible Falls once and briefly discussed how Gavilar saw the world differently now. Three days later, Szeth assassinated Gavilar.
