Via Ferrata Will Be Equipped In One Of the Gorges In the Untsuk District Of Dagestan

Specialists began preparations for the construction of a ferrate (an extreme tourist route) in one of the gorges in the Untsuk district of Dagestan.

      The tour route may be of interest to extreme climbers. A ferrate site in the gorge of seven waterfalls is planned to be equipped already for the next tourist season.

      Preparation of the site is handled by specialists of the Ministry together with the DPPS of the Ministry of Emergency Situations of Russia and the administration of the Untsukul District. Climbers have already made measurements for the installation of anchors. Via ferrata is a rocky area, equipped with metal structures. It will be equipped with a safety line and fixed with steel clamps on the rock, which will represent a semblance of a ladder.

      Dagestan means the "Mountain Country" in Turkic as 56% of its total territory is covered with mountain ranges and valleys. Mountain peaks covered with snow all year round impress tourists with their magnificent beauty and calm. Green valleys and meadows, sand seashore and world famous Caucasian hospitality contribute to the growing popularity of the region.

      Dagestan is unique due to a great variety of cultures and peoples, too: more than 30 ethnic groups have been living here from time immemorial on a relatively small territory, forming the united community of peoples who have never waged wars against each other. It is not by mere chance that the land of Mountains is otherwise called the "Mountain of Languages".

      Folklore and handicraft traditions, especially in the mountainous regions are as rich in Dagestan as anywhere else in Russia. Dagestan’s intricately patterned carpets and textiles are the most renowned of the region’s crafts. Other crafts such as jewelry making, pottery making, wood notching, etc are also well known throughout the world.

      Dagestan is rich in historical and cultural monuments. There are over 8,000 monuments in Dagestan that are under federal protection. Some of them are truly unique ones: grandiose defense system in Derbent, 7th century Naryn-Kala fortress, 13-15th centuries mosques and fortresses, etc. Situated on the joint of Europe and Asia, Dagestan belongs to both East and West. Grandiose mountainous landscapes, picturesque fertile valleys, deserts and liana forests, waterfalls and wonderful sea beaches enrapture the spectator with their inimitable beauty, and those who have seen these picturesque landscapes of Dagestan, starve for returning here again and again. Dagestan, this "museum in the open air", is far from having been studied to the full, its ancient fortresses, manuscripts, and heroic legends still keep many mysteries. But the way of life of the peoples of Dagestan can be undoubtedly called the phenomenon of the "Dagestan civilization".

      How to get there and away


      Makhachkala airport operates daily flights to/from Moscow (Vnukovo or Domodedovo airports), twice a week to/from Rostov-on-Don, St. Petersburg, and once a week to/from Kazan, Krasnodar, etc.


      Makhachkala railway station serves regular trains to/from Moscow (Paveletsky station) with stops at Kizlyar, Astrakhan, Saratov, and Tambov. Trains run between Derbent and Rostov-on-Don. There are also transit trains with a short stop in Makhachkala following from Baku to Astrakhan, Kharkov, Moscow, and Kiev.


      The road from Moscow to Makhachkala (via Astrakhan, and further on to Baku) is safe and not really busy. There are numerous buses and minivans running from Makhachkala to Derbent and other cities and towns of the Republic, except for mountainous regions.
