Make sure you climb to the top and take in the viewpoints on both sides. You can paddle in the stream (maybe not legally) at the top before it plunges hundreds of feet just out of sight downstream.

The Big waterfall is the first one you see when you enter NP's north entrance (1. entrance) in Rastovaca. It's the tallest one in the park and a nice place for individual or group photo. First you walk down the canyon, enter the lower lakes and then go right on the boardwalk. There is a tight spot (crowded) over there... More

There was lots of water coming over the 78 metre falls during our visit in late May due to the large amounts of rain the area had been receiving. This made for a magnificent spectacle, though the approach to the base of the falls across temporary boards above the flooded board walk needed some care. And if you meet a... More

I think this is one of the most beautiful part of the Plitvicka jezera´s National Park. It depends on season how much water falls down in this waterfall, but you can enjoy an amazing view of this nater beauty for whole the year.

After walking around for about one hour we found this beautiful waterfall. But no worries the route is pretty straight forward and one cannot get lost there.
