Mountainous Dagestan is an amazing place, a country of mountains and languages. And the Sulak Canyon is its pearl. Such a beautiful place worth seeing. The opportunity to look from a height at the beauty of the water surface, framed by mountain peaks. When you stand on the edge of the abyss, around the mountains and only the wind in your face – the feeling is indescribable. Whoever has not seen the Sulak Canyon has not been to Dagestan. Without it, your journey through Dagestan can be considered unfinished. If there is a special spirit of Dagestan in the world, then it certainly lives in this beautiful place and enjoy the beautiful river and the majesty of the mountains. It looks at the world from an eagle’s height and protects its creation!
Many people admire the “Grand Canyon” in the US state of Colorado. But few are aware that we have a canyon in Russia, which is even larger, and to see it with your own eyes you do not need to fly across the ocean, or even just leave the country. Incredible space around, the frantic depth of the canyon itself and eagles soaring in the sky. In the distance, on the horizon, you can also see the Chirkey reservoir. At the edge of the cliff there is an observation deck. The height (depth) of the canyon is 1920 meters – almost 2 kilometers! This is more than the mentioned Grand Canyon from the USA and is the 6th most important among all the canyons in the world. If you look closely, you can see small settlements below, the Sulak River meandering along the bottom of the canyon, and even tiny boats sailing along this river.
Old Zubutli - boat ride
The first point is the village of Zubutli in the Republic of Dagestan – the lower observation place.
We recommend visiting the canyon from all sides! The canyon is beautiful from any point, so a boat ride through the canyon itself is a must!
You should definitely take a boat ride through the canyon and admire it from below. We will visit the lower observation deck in the village of Old Zabutli and take a boat ride along the incredibly beautiful Sulak River. Green slopes of mountains, light puffs of clouds, peace and grace. A boat trip is paid separately, 600 rubles per person.
Peach Orchard - lunch
We have lunch in the Peach Garden. We will go up from the village, on the way we will look at the magnificent views of the river, the greenery of the gardens. The peach garden occupies 7.5 hectares, it has about 300 peach and apricot trees, several thousand vine bushes, several plum and walnut trees. The garden is a family business of the Salmanovs. It is over 30 years old. Now there are places for rest. Here, for an additional fee, we can taste a delicious Dagestan lunch and enjoy fruit and wine. A special highlight is herbal tea, which is brewed on apricot coals and served to guests directly from the samovar.
Village Dubki - observation place
After viewing the turquoise surface of the water with the bizarre relief of the mountains from below we go up to higher areas.
Usually tourists are attracted to Dagestan by the gentle Caspian Sea. But tired of the hot sun and sea rest, they begin to look closely at the mountain coolness. It is at this moment that a trip to Sulak becomes the best decision!
The Sulak Canyon is a very popular natural landmark of the republic among tourists. There are always a lot of local residents who prefer active recreation, and many guests of Dagestan. The most famous and visited place in the republic. More and more tourists from all over the world choose the Sulak Canyon as their vacation spot, because it is actually even steeper than the Grand Canyon.
The canyon is really impressive and leaves no tourist indifferent. Its scale is impressive, and the panoramas are mesmerizing. What a height, view, breathtaking! After all, we see one of the deepest canyons in the world! Even deeper than the famous Colorado Grand Canyon!
