Description of Kamianets (Kamianka) Waterfall
The object got its name from the river where it is located - Kamianka. We’ll note that this is one of the most popular waterfalls in the Lviv Oblast. Its feature is a unique location - in the National Natural Park "Skole Beskids", which is under state protection. Around the Kamianets miracle there are amazing wooded slopes, many greenery, rock formations. The place is ideal for bright photo sessions and setting up a tent camp.
Kamianets Waterfall reaches a height of 6 meters and consists of only one cascade, which does not make it less beautiful compared to larger formations. Due to the small rock ledge, it is divided into two separate streams, which make the object even more voluminous and majestic. The best time to watch the year is spring, the rainy season. This is due to the high water of Kamyanka, as in summer the water level in the river drops to a critical level and, in fact, looking at the waterfall is not so pleasant.
