The Günpnar Waterfall is a waterfall that can be located on the Uhul Stream, a tributary of the Tohma Stream, in the Darende area of the province of Malaty. Earlier, the waterfall was named to as Aşudu Waterfall after the nearby community. Following the village’s name change to Gürpnar, Gürpnar Waterfall adopted the name Günpnar Waterfall before becoming Gürpnar. Slope rupture is how the waterfall fault line has presented itself. The uhul Stream, which emerges from Hezanl Mountain, is the waterfall’s source. Karst springs 2 km west of the waterfall produce the stream.
At the opening of the canyon, a waterfall forms. The three-step waterfall descends from a height of 25 metres. The initial fall occurs from a height of 13 metres. The second drop is a 4 m drop at a 70° southward angle. A third drop occurs at a 90° angle, 8 m in height, and a slight turn to the south. It resembles the Gürlevik Waterfall with its three stairs. Its flow rate is 1 m3/s. A huge cauldron that measured 2.5 metres in diameter and 1.5 metres in depth was produced by the waterfall’s discharge.
