Keterisi Mineral Vaucluse Natural Monument (Georgian: ქეთერისის მინერალური ვოკლუზი) is a cluster of powerful mineral water artesian aquifers pouring out at the foot of the Greater Caucasus, known as Narzan vaucluse: these mineral springs provide 25-30 million liters of hydrocarbonate-calcium water per day,[1] which corresponds to 300-350 liters per second. From these sources originates stream, which creates water cascades in the village of Keterisi.[2][3][4]

It is part of Kazbegi Protected Areas[5] along with Kazbegi National Park and five Natural Monuments:
