Interestingly, not every resident of the Khmelnytskyi region knows about the existence of this place, which, in fact, is the advantage of going to this waterfall.

Description of Bourbon (Burbun) Waterfall
The object is located in the canyon of the Bobrovka River, a rather beautiful, unusual place. Water from the waterfall falls from a picturesque gorge, about 5 meters high with a distinctive rumble. It should be noted that the water in the waterfall is very cold during the whole year, so you should be careful, including during swimming in the summer heat. Below from Bourbon you can see a small lake with a characteristic turquoise tint. Nevertheless, the local residents do not deny themselves the pleasure of swimming, and they can do it even not in the most favorable weather.
The abnormally low temperature regime of the water is explained by the peculiarity of the structure of the gorge, formed hundreds of years ago, consisting mainly of shell deposit and silicon rocks, and also a large amount of greenery, which does not allow the sun's rays to break through to the mirror of the lake. As a result, the waterfall is not able to warm up like, for example, rivers, steppe reservoirs. Therefore, the location is not at all suitable for a beach holiday, but it is popular among tourists who prefer tent cities. During the season, you can gather nature's gifts here, in particular wild berries, mushrooms and so on.
