  • A wonderful landscape, untouched, where peace and silence, full of grazing animals. The falls are not very high, but have their fascination. You can see from above or following a trail you can go down to below.

  • Thanks to the fix needed to reach these pristine and secluded valleys, remained intact and not overrun by mass tourism. The same path to get to the falls and the Tovkhon monastery are worth the trip. Unique opportunity to get in touch with the latest nomadic peoples of the Earth.
