    Türkiye’nin kendi alanında en önemli turistik mekanlarından biri. Erzurum-Artvin karayolu üzerinde yer almasından ulaşımı oldukça kolay. Bunun yanında yenileme çalışması sonrası yürüyüş yolu yapıldı. Etrafını şimdi daha rahat gezebiliyorsunuz. Bundan önce şelalenin dibine kadar gidilebiliyordu ancak artık o imkan yok.
