Christmas multiactive on Elbrus. 3 gorges of Kabardino-Balkaria

As part of the tour, you will be able to enjoy various types of tourism: walking tours, trekking in nature, jipping to the most inaccessible corners of the republic, which not every traveler manages to visit. 

The tour opens with an introduction to the heart of the region — the city of Nalchik, where you will explore its streets, history and culture. Most of the tour is devoted to exploring the amazing nature of the CBD, as well as the amazing peoples who have lived high in the mountains since ancient times. After crossing the famous gorge, the participants will see the Chegem waterfalls and the crypts of the ancient Balkarian village of Eltyubyu. And what is the view of the Blue Lake worth, a visit to which one of the routes will end!
