Then the path will pass through the places of the legendary "Silk Road": you will climb the plateau to admire the surroundings from an altitude of 1000 meters above sea level, see the famous Mount Ring, and then descend into the gorge of the Alikonovka River, where the magnificent Honey Waterfalls are hidden. I will accompany the picturesque mountain views with the stories and legends of these places
