Bridal Veil Falls


Legend says that

The name of the waterfall comes from a tragic accident, in which a bride on her wedding day fell right from the cliffs of the mountains, its veil staying hooked. It is said that the wedding guests stopped the party and cried for the bride and in that very spot came to life a waterfall : “Bridal Veil”.

The waterfall consists of two steps, taken from the bottom up, the first step is the most spectacular, and the second is above the first forming a water reservoir, together totaling a drop of nearly 50 feet tall. The waterfall was  affected by forest road passing near it and reaches the area above it. You may reach to this road on foot or by car. From here you can admire the waterfall from top down (we recommend not getting too close to the water because there has been some fatal incidents reported).
