The Uchan-Su Waterfall

Operation: year round
Location: Yalta
 
Surrounded with relic pine-trees, the Uchan-Su Waterfall casts the same-named river waters down the 98.5-meter vertical cliff.
The name of this highest waterfall of Ukraine is translated as the “flying water”. Indeed, when the snow is melting on the yayla or after heavy showers, the powerful flow runs down the cliff breaking into myriads of splashes, dispersing into water dust and creating beautiful rainbows, when sunny. The roar of water is so loud that it can be heard kilometers away from the place. Wetting your clothes thoroughly with the water dust is a matter of seconds in the waterfall’s vicinity. It is a very powerful and beautiful highlight of the Crimea if you arrive on time to see it.
On contrary, when it is hot and dry, there is not much of the “flying water” left. The waterfall drowsily and quietly trickles down as if tired of the exhausting summer sun.
During the sever winters the waterfall freezes into a festoon of icicles, standing out on the yellow-grey cliff’s background. The icicles do not freeze completely and are in reality ice tubes filled with water. In the 80th of the past century a Crimean mountain climber, Yury Lishayev, has made a challenging ascent of the frozen Uchan-Su Waterfall.
To see Uchan-Su at its best, visit it in the early spring when the snow is melting and early blooming snowdrops and crocuses open their pretty flowers.

We arrived back from Ukraine yesterday, and I wanted to thank you for the excellent service that you provided. The airport connection at Kiev and the provision of train tickets could not have been more efficient, and the English translation attached to the tickets was much appreciated!

We had a great time in your beautiful country, and everything went smoothly thanks to you.

With kind regards

Martin and Kathryn, UK
