Valaste Waterfall

Valaste Juga

With a 26 meter drop this is the highest waterfall in Estonia, it is located in Valaste along the Ontika cliff, which itself reaches 56 meters at its highest point.

The outcrop created by the waterfall exposes the geological layers of the cliff. The strikingly blueish layer is glauconitic sandstone.
