What awaits you
Dagestan Grand Canyon The path itself from Makhachkala, including the ascent along the serpentine road, will bring many beautiful landscapes. And when you arrive at your destination, you will enjoy the panoramic views to your heart's content. Consider from all angles the turquoise "serpentine" ribbon cutting through the steep stone walls in the distance. You can ride a boat along the canyon, see “crying” mountains, waterfalls and, if you're lucky, wild goats with proud eagles
“I dismounted - to avoid dizziness, it is better to stand on my feet and feel the ground beneath me. But this was not enough - I lay down on the ground and covered my eyes with my hands. The nervous tremor that seized me seemed to merge with the heartbeat of the earth: the earth seemed to live, move, beat beneath me - in fact, this was how my heart was beating”, - this is how A. Dumas described his feelings in the canyon, traveling in 1858 across Dagestan.
