Bekhal waterfall is a natural attraction located in the mountainous northern part of the Kurdistan Region of Iraq, near the town of Rawandiz in Erbil Governorate. The waterfall is formed by the Bekhal stream, which flows through a steep rocky gorge before dropping approximately 35 meters into a pool below. The area around the waterfall is surrounded by lush greenery and is a popular spot for hiking and picnicking.

Visitors can reach the waterfall by hiking along a trail that begins at the town of Bekhal, located about 4 km from Rawandiz. The trail is relatively easy and takes about 30 minutes to hike. The waterfall can also be accessed by car or taxi, with a short walk from the parking area to the falls.
