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.
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.
Beautiful even at a rainy day. There are seats present directly at the waterfall, but only after some steps. So that part is not wheel chair accessible.
