  • Interesting and accessible location close to the warm Turquoise Lake on the Katun River. Seems to be a network of caves, which are high in rock. Go up there on special staircases. In General, the route is not difficult, but requires physical effort and the absence of claustrophobia. Tours conducts tour guide that tells about interesting facts and makes notes of humor. We were on a guided tour, but it was enough to appreciate the beauty and size of the caves. We saw the high stone arches, narrow passageways, alcoves and corridors, as well as fanciful sculptures that resemble various beings. All this creates a special mystical atmosphere romantic and in the light of the semi-gloss of artificial lighting. Cons: there are up to 50 people. Inside the caves can be a bit crowded. Immediately I wanted to visit longer excursions to neighboring caves. But they lead every day and need to be booked in advance. The cost of excursions is quite acceptable.

Threatened that if the term tribute filed will not be, then select the unwitting people their children. Sons take in his army, and daughters into slavery-weave rugs, goat milking and all menial tasks to do. Day and night were tossing on the vacant forest hunters. Ponurye, with empty nets waded in poor fishermen, yurts in lakes and rivers has long been an not fish. All disappeared in the insatiable, bottomless womb River eager. How long it lasted, nobody knew. Once reappeared in those places young people: husband wife Yes. And soon the good glory went on all nearby stojbishham about them. Manzherok, so called man, strong, agile, was on the hunt, though on a fishing trip. And subdued all that knew how to sculpt in clay any dishes. When the hot furnace he found their wonderful bowls, yes he gave out lavish the poor, joy was the end. Katyng. so his slender zelenoglazuju wife, subdued all his ability to embroider rugs with exotic birds, animals and flowers, yes weave fishnets, what those places are not seen.

  • There are hourly, jeksskursija and 6-4. In an hour you'll see quite a few. Most children are afraid and vy0odili of the caves. It is better to take the 4:00 tour for people without children with the equipment. The caves are cool
