One day
Elbrus area, Kabardino-Balkaria

The first part of the trip is described hereBaksan canyon

The waterfall Devichi Kosy (Maiden’s Braids) in the Elbrus region is one of the most famous and most visited by tourists places, located at an altitude of 2800 m on the slope of Terskol peak. You will see graceful and transparent jets of a thirty-meter stream descending through the gutters under pressure from the Gara-Bashi glacier. The waterfall is framed by basalt rocks. There is such a strong noise near the source that it simply will not work to talk and hear the interlocutor! In summer, the water is very warm, you can even take water procedures. From here it is not far to get to the international observatory called «Peak Terskol».

Here you are left alone with nature, and on the hill you can see the panorama of the royal peaks that the Caucasus is famous for. Landscapes open on the slope of the mountains are stunning and bewitching! And the Maiden’s Braids waterfall itself is one of the wonders of Russia!
