Inspirock Rating:
2.3/5 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.
