Valaste Waterfall, Kohtla
(2.2/5 based on 40+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Opposite the falls is the eponymous guesthouse or hotel, you can have a snack, there is free parking. To view the waterfall itself is enough to cross the road. In early September 2016 observation deck was closed, there have changed flooring, so you can see the waterfall side only. Were bold travelers who evaded but, on the other hand, there is in principle no fences, and the height is large, we have not ventured. Yes, there are visible layers of rocks and curious enough to look, but a lot of the time the inspection does not take
