The beauty of Dombay. Walking tour

During the 7 days of the tour, you will visit the most important places of Dombay — both its "business cards" and the locations that hide behind the inconspicuous turns of the mountain trails. 

You will see the Chuchhur waterfalls, walk along the edge of the Alibek glacier and, perhaps, see real tours descending to the lake with which they shared their name, taste the waters of the healing narzan. And the "royal ascent" is waiting for you, and as soon as it is behind your shoulders, the cascade of the Baduk lakes will open to you. You will definitely find out how the Devil's Mill appeared in the Dombai forests, and, of course, enjoy the incredible views from the Moussa Achitara mountain and the lakes of the same name.
