Jägala Waterfall

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.

    Nice thing to view

    You would not spend your day there but it is worth staying a while. Even though it is not so high, the waterfall is quite impressive as when you stay at the top it looks like the ground is...

    Picturesque Location

    Went here on a tour of Laheema National Park and it was such a great location to get a taste of the Estonian countryside. Parking is really close by and you can get nice and close to the waterfall...

    Great Waterfall!

    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.
