Know More About Shaki Waterfall of Armenia:

Shaki Waterfall is a beautiful spot, where cascades of water plunge 60 feet down over solidified basalt lava flows. The waterfall was enjoyed much like any other natural attraction until the 1990s when someone built a small hydroelectric generator nearby and began diverting most of the water from upstream to generate electricity. 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, Shaki waterfall has a large capacity, and the rumbling of water is heard from afar.

The territory of Shaki waterfall was inhabited by ancient civilizations that left traces in rock niches and grottoes. A winding road leads to the waterfall, still, you will have to leave the car and get to the waterfall by a narrow path.

Visitors can freely enjoy the full beauty of this waterfall between 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. from May 1 to September 30, and between 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. from March 15 and April 30, and October 1 and November 15.
