Jermuk Waterfall, Jermuk

4.7
#2 of 17 in Things to do in Vayots Dzor Province
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.

  • To the waterfall can be approached 2. I was the first time a long way. Local will tell how it reached. Go min. 30. The road goes along the river and picturesque valley. The waterfall there is a hapless legend, it can be read online. If you go on behind the waterfall, you'll see a ladder, vedushhuu on 2 sides, and it's going to be a 2 I. Ascending the stairs on the side of the waterfall, you will leave at the end of p. Jermuk and return to your resort.

  • The waterfall is located in the lowland, accessible through a picturesque road, we stopped several times for a photo. The waterfall itself, just as impressive, there's a very good atmosphere, you can sit and watch this pours pure, straight Taki crystal water!

  • Very beautiful waterfall. I didn't want to go, the more besides us there was nobody at all. After the rain-as if the air even cleaner seemed, although too where cleaner, so at an altitude of 2800, with the population of the town of 4000 people))). Highly recommend.

  • Nice place to visit. It's great to see how water makes it's own path.
  • Without words, listening to the water is the maximum

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.
