Description of Krapelnyi Waterfall

Experienced travelers are well aware that the same waterfalls do not exist. Therefore, each new object is able to bring them a bright and truly (in the good sense of the word) unforgettable experience. Kraplynnyi (Krapelkovyi) Waterfall is most often visited in the warm season, when you can not only look at the miniature streams falling from a height of 10 meters down, but even swim. The place is perfect for a picnic or a holiday with a tent. Given the fact that the waterfall is in the mountains, before hiking to it, it is desirable to prepare a route, and ideally - to use the help of an experienced guide.

The waterfall breaks out of a narrow gorge. In the dry season, it flows down in individual drops. It is this feature that gave it the appropriate name. Its unusual architecture gives the opportunity to look at the surrounding space "from the inside". The fact is that there is a separate convenient approach that allows you to stand between the jets of water and the rock surface, almost as in the mirror-world. It should be added that the waterfall is not considered cascading, because the water flows in one stream. In terms of accessibility for the average tourist, Krapelnyi Waterfall is quite convenient. Only some sections of the road to it can be called difficult.
