This small waterfall is located near the much better known Ivande Waterfall and can be reached by some 5-minute long walk along the right bank of the river.

This fall is formed by a spring and falls over layers of the Middle Devonian dolostone. Light-colored and red sandstone layers are seen under the dolostone.

The spring is fed by shallow groundwater and in summer there is no water in it.

Powerful natural freshwater springs belong to the most fascinating monuments of nature. Even more exciting is the diversity of unusual springs – mineral springs, hot springs, submarine springs as well as the unusual black smokers. Especially beautiful are such natural rarities as travertine, silica, or salt terraces created by warm and hot springs and, especially, geysers.
