Jermuk Waterfall drops gently from a height of 72 m (236 ft) and spills into a river gorge. As is the case with many Armenian natural sites, this one inspired a folktale. Legend has it that the foaming water is the hair of a beautiful princess whose father cursed her to turn into a mermaid if she tried to see her shepherd lover. Unable to stay away from her beloved, the princess tossed her hair into the gorge, which turned into a waterfall.

  • Waterfall named "Mermaid's hair" is also worthy of attention if you are in Jermuk. If you go to the sanatorium "Olympia" go right towards the bridge over the mountain river, pass the intersection and go straight. The right is sanatorium located on the repairs, after it turn right and you will see the road which goes down-this is the way to the waterfall, there is no longer get lost. Very beautiful waterfall, which is well worth a visit, also on the road to it open very beautiful views.

Where to stay in Jermuk

A resort town back on the rise following the denouement of its Soviet heyday, Jermuk has a good number of accommodations, with all the main options located north of the airport and close to the springs. Health spas with a range of additional facilities remain the most popular choice with visitors (given the town's claim to fame), but more budget-conscious travelers will be pleased to discover a range of reasonably priced standard hotels in old Soviet blocks. You can always pop into one of the spas for a treatment anyway.
