Jermuk Waterfall, Jermuk

(4.8/5 based on 60 reviews on the web)
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.
