The water falls down by a heavy flow from a height of 15 meters. Local people call it Huk which means noise, because of a loud roaring sound produced by the waterfall. You can reach the waterfall by visiting the nature-discovery trail “To the Huk Waterfall”. It starts near the Zhenets Nature Protection Scientific and Research Department.
