Herher Waterfall

Herher Waterfall (the common name for Qaravaz Waterfalls) is located on Herher River, 2.5 km North of Herher Village in Vayots Dzor Province. There are two waterfalls, 'natural wonders', of which one flows from a hole between the rocks.

There is a deep pool under the second waterfall, where you can swim.

In 2008, the Waterfall was registered as a “Hydrological Monument”.

There is also a resorvoir built on Herher River which is also an amazing place to hike to during your trip.
