Trip To Terskol: Local Pecularities
December 14, 2015 02:19


People come to Terskol, just like to the Elbrus region in general, not only during the ski season and not only for skiing.

The village is suitable as a base for other kinds of recreation: it is convenient to go hiking in the surroundings, make one-day climbings, swim (only very cautiously) in cold mountain rivers, wander through alpine meadows and sunlit pine forests. You can get to the amazingly beautiful and powerful waterfalls – Terskolsky and Devichyi Kosy (“Maiden’s Braids”).

First you need to get to the Terskol Gorge (the road begins just from the village), and then choose the left or the right path in the gorge. The left one leads to the Novyi Krugozor Meadow, where the observatory of the Academy of Sciences is located, and then goes to the waterfall with a romantic name. Its flows are divided into small jets looking like braids (its name, however, is new and is invented for tourists, like all these beautiful names). There is a grotto at the bottom of the waterfall, under these very braids.
