Template:SkyrimLandmarks Its located high in the mountains of The Reach. A large waterfall is clearly visible from the distance as one approaches the area. This location can be reached through Lost Valley Redoubt or from Bilegulch Mine.

Word of Power

Facing away from the diving spot one can see a structure with some tanned leather in front of it. Behind that there are two Hagravens creating a Forsworn Briar Heart. Kill the Hagravens before they resurrect the Briar Heart. After killing both Hagravens, collect the word of power and loot the chest. If the player is at a higher level, one of the Hagravens may have a Daedra Heart.


After reaching the cliff top, follow the stone bridge to overlook the waterfall. Then jump off the diving area and land in a small pool. (The shout Become Ethereal is good insurance here.) Upon leaving the pool, the Dragonborn will be met by the ghost of the bard Azzadal, who will tell his tale of an unsuccessful attempt to make the dive. After speaking with him, the Speechcraft skill will increase one level.


  • The player does not have to leap from this location, merely walk off the side of the diving board and skid down the rock face behind the waterfall.


  • When fast traveling to this location on a horse, it's possible the horse will spawn above the waterfall and float in the air. The horse can to fall to its death after fast traveling to this location.
  • A horse that is owned may be lost after the Dragonborn takes the leap. This can affect all horses in-game and all horses will either be stolen or borrowed.
