Jermuk Waterfall, Jermuk

#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.

    The road until you reach the waterfall is very nice. Already worthwhile in itself. In fact you go as through a tunnel created by the River, and they say that if you ask a wish you it complies. The waterfall is beautiful. No more.

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.
