TORTUM ŞELALESİ

Turkey's tallest waterfall

TortumDon't make the mistake of looking for Tortum waterfall at Tortum on the road from Erzurum to Artvin. In fact it's north of Uzundere at the northern end of Tortum Gölü (lake).

At 48m high, the waterfall is beautiful whenever you visit, but is at its stunning best at the end of May/beginning of June when it is plumped up with melted snow.

There's a fee to park beside the waterfall, then steps lead down to a viewing platform. Afterwards you can drink tea beside a small pool at the top. 

Avoid visiting at weekends when the car park is chaos. 

Transport info

There's nothing to stop you hopping off a bus travelling between Erzurum and Artvin to visit the falls, then hopping back on the next one. Otherwise, you can get a taxi from Uzundere.
