Package Itinerary

On the left side of the Vorotan River Gorge, flows of basalt lava have become solid to form a ledge of 18 meters in height from which the waterfall of Shaki cascades down. The origin of the name Shaki comes from the beautiful same-named girl. According to the legend, a conqueror admired the beauty of Shaki and ordered her to come to him. Shaki didn’t want to become a victim of his violence jumps from a high rock. When falling down her long dress opens and turns into a waterfall. Since then it is called Shaki waterfall.

Located in Syunik Province 6 km away from the town of Sisian, the Shaki cave waterfall is one of the most inspiring sights in Armenia. The territory around the Shaki waterfall is a unique architectural depository. Scientists joke that it is right the place where the development of humankind has run with incredibly quick steps. Many ancient grottos have been explored in this region and even the international scientific community intends to make it a reserved area.

Stone niches, relatively deep grottos, steep slopes, and cool and noisy water form a strikingly beautiful fall, the majestic appearance of which was admired even by ancient people. Falling down from the height of 40 meters, the huge amount of water fills the atmosphere with astonishing freshness.

The waterfall is formed on the Shaki River, on the inflow of Vorotan that falls into a deep gorge from a height of 18 meters. Despite the small height, the Shaki waterfall has a large capacity, and the rumbling of water is heard from afar.
