One of the most well-known waterfalls in Finland, Tsahkalputous (Tsahkal Falls) is a great place to visit for those in search of a refreshing, beautiful and magical landscape. The total drop height of the falls is about 10 meters and spans across a distance of 100 meters, which makes for an interesting photo.

This photo was taken of Tsahkalputous (Tsahkal Falls). I stood on top of rocks for this view.
First, drive to the Kilpisjärvi Visitor Centre where you can park your car. Then, walk about a kilometer northeast, along the Nordkalottleden Trail, to the shore of the Tsahkaljärvi Lake (about 1.1km). Take the wooden bridge crossing the river and continue downwards along the path so you can get a low angle of the waterfall.
