"Korbu Waterfall received the status of Special Nature Zone and is located on the territory of the Altai State Nature Park (included on the UNESCO world nature heritage list). Therefore the waterfall receives many tourists. Without the waterfall there wouldn't be so many visitors on Lake Teletskoye. The waterfall is 12 meters high.

In summertime it attracts tens of thousands of tourists. Each has to pay a tax but this is not enough to solve the problems of the pressure of men on the natural site. The direction of Altai State Nature Park is thinking about maybe occasionally closing the site to tourists." In: BaikalNature
