Turjekeldri Waterfall

Turjekeldri Waterfall is the fourth highest waterfall in Lahemaa: the water falls down the four-metre sandstone bank of the Pakerort stage.

In the course of time, water and ice have created a cave which looks like a large vaulted basement. The cave got its name from the Turje family living high up on the klint. The waterfall does not usually have a lot of water, except during the time that the snow is melting.

An old folks' tale about Turjekeldri cave says that this used to be Devil's vodka cellar. Instead of water, vodka used to flow out of the banks and beautiful witches used to sell it.

Today, it is good to keep in mind that this water does not originate from a spring but from the water for consumption that has flown down from the klint; therefore, it is not the healthiest one to drink.
