What awaits you
Path along rivers and between mountains An auto-road leads from the Black Sea coast to the lake, passing through the valleys of the Bzyb, Yupshara and Gega rivers. Here you will listen to the silence of the narrow Jupsharsky canyon, where only 20 meters are separated by high cliffs. Touch the waterfalls of the Maiden and the Man's Tears and learn their legend. You will collect the purest water in two alpine springs and take fantastic pictures on the observation deck of the Chabgar cornice
The miraculous symbols of Abkhazia and its history An indomitable stream of water breaks down from 50 meters, enveloping in a water mist … You will see the Gegsky waterfall, the largest in Abkhazia. And after you the culmination of the journey awaits - Ritsa We will stop at the observation deck with a postcard panorama of the lake, surrounded by wooded mountains. During the trip, I will talk about my homeland: about life, customs, traditions and fate of Abkhazia, about the legends of the flora and fauna of the Ritsa relict park
Delicious country On the shore of the lake or in any other place you like, we will arrange a picnic: I will take with me hot lavash, homemade cheese, herbs and vegetables, compote and chacha. On the way, you will also taste and buy Abzkhaz honey, cheese and wine. At the end of the excursion, I propose to dine at a restaurant of national cuisine - with toasts and conversations about impressions
The excursion can be extended and climbed higher into the mountains. There you will see the Bird's Beak and Molochny waterfalls, relax on the pristine Ritsin beach of Svetlana Alliluyeva and again admire the indescribable views from the Orlan's Nest site (1500 m above sea level).
