Putna Waterfall

Putna Waterfall is located in The Carpathian Mountains, in Vrancea County, on Putna River, about 2 km downstream from the village Lepșa.

This waterfall is very accessible on a short road (2D National Road) that crosses the mountains and connects Moldova and Transylvania through the Tulnici Pass.

Putna Waterfall is also known as “Săritoarea Putnei” (Putna Jumping). Yet, it is rather a waterfall with steps, about 80m in length. Its water has a speed of 9m to 18m/s.

The waterfall ends in a quiet, green lake, of 12 m depth.

Due to its beauty and natural features, Putna Waterfall was declared a Natural Monument, in 1973.
