How to Get to Leiraki Waterfall

Nakra is an alpine village famous for its therapeutic mineral waters, natural beauty, and historical monuments. The waterfall, located north of the village, is 150 metres tall and falls in the shape of a five step staircase, four of which are visible.

It is twelve kilometers from Nakra’s center to the waterfall, ten of which can be covered by a 4WD car. The last two kilometers will need to be done either on foot or on horseback.

While you’re in the area, you can also make the 9-10 kilometer journey from the waterfall to Donghuzonuri Pass, where you’ll have a view of Mt. Elbrus, Europe’s highest mountain.
