Valaste Waterfall, Kohtla

(50 reviews on the web)
Waterfall
Valaste Waterfall is the highest waterfall in Estonia and neighboring regions (30.5 m) situated between Ontika and Valaste in the Kohtla Parish of the Ida-Viru County and formed by a stream as it flows over the Baltic Klint not far from the shore of the Gulf of Finland. It is a popular tourist attraction with its spray freezing up spectacularly in winter. There is a parking lot, some explanatory signs, and a very well made trail using a double spiral staircase to get down the cliff. Opposite the waterfall a viewing platform has been built for tourists, and this offers spectacular views of the falls.The Platform is broken and the stairs have been closed at least since 2013.
