“Worth to visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 July 2014

Tortum is one the biggest waterfall in Turkey. If you are around Erzurum it is really worth to travel here. Me and my other crazy friends even swam in small lake around :D . No fee to enter.

“They claim it's the third largest in the world...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 May 2014

But once you've been to Niagara falls, this looks like a joke. If you want to see a good waterfall in Turkey, go to the ones down south.

“Nice Waterfall ”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 May 2014 via mobile

This waterfall is definitely worth visiting if you are driving past to Erzurum. You don't have to walk far, it is fed by a sedate river above, caused by a fault. It is a nice wide waterfall. The environment is not very well maintained, rubbish around on the ground. It is not so tall. There is a tea house nearby for snacks. Overall a good experience.

“Impressive Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 November 2013 via mobile

It's the biggest waterfall of Turkey they say, and it really was very impressive.. The amount of water pouring down from above and the sound really cleans your mind.. very meditative... and the surrounding is also very beautiful... If you travel the east of Turkey I'd recommend this plac.. real piece of nature....

P.S. You can also have a bbq near the falls if you travel by caravan or with friends..

“Worth taking a detour”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 October 2013

This is really a very nice waterfall. I visited in October and then it was very quiet. We could get a cup of tea in the restaurant next to it (ofcourse!) but there was not much more to offer as there were hardly any tourists anymore. However, the waterfall is very nice. You can walk around to see it from different angles.
Also drive around in the Georgian valley and visit Öskvank cathedral. Not just for the highlights itself as it is too far away just to go there for the highlights but also to enjoy the environment. Really beautiful in autumn!
