Jägala Waterfall is a waterfall in the lower course of the Jägala River, approximately 4 km before the river flows into the Gulf of Finland. The waterfall is approx. 8 metres in height and more than 50 metres in width. It is the widest natural waterfall in Estonia.
The waterfall is a peculiar sight to see in winter, when the water mass frozen in cold weather becomes a glistening ice wall with large icicles. A tunnel surrounded in both sides by ice may be formed in between the ice hanging down from the edge of the waterfall and the wall of waterfall. Interesting to know: - In terms of fishery the lower course of the Jägala River from the waterfall to the river mouth is one of the most valuable ones in Estonia – large trout and salmon resources can be found here.
Very impressive waterfall! Parking very close to it and well worth seeing. A path goes along side it too. The water looks brown as it cascades over.
I was so excited to go behind a waterfall for the first time in my life. It was really cool experience. The waterfall spot was great for 30 min walk/hike.
This waterfall in Jõelähtme parish is really worth visiting. You can easily see the waterfall from the top and the bottom. It's quite well signed from the main road.
