Krasnodar Territory: The “Past Dyavola” (“Devil’s Mouth”) Waterfall
March 31, 2017 00:59


The “Past Dyavola” (“Devil’s Mouth”) Waterfall (Psechiako) is located in the vicinity of Goryachiy Klyuch, in the upper reaches of the Maltsev Brook. The waterfall has four cascades, its overall height amounts to 23 m.

The gorge hosting the waterfall is clamped by sandstone cliffs on both sides. Well-beaten trail climbs up from the left bank of the brook. There is a comfortable resting place with a campfire equipped on the top. It will take you 1.5-2 hours to get from the centre of the Goryachiy Klyuch to this place, if you are going by foot trough the Valley of the Maltsev Gap. The route is recommended for untrained and poorly prepared groups.

The Navisla (“Hanging”) Mountain is located near Goryachiy Klyuch. It can be found at the watershed of the rivers Ayuk and Chepsi. Its height: 704 m. South-western, southern and eastern slopes are steep and rocky. The mountain got its name just for the fact that it as though hangs over the Chepsi River in the narrow part of its valley. Northern slopes are gentle, a wooded range descends to the North-east to the Podnavisla-1 tract. Climbing to the top from Podnavisla-1 takes 4-4.5 hours.

There is a fortress on the left bank of the Chepsi River (the left tributary of the Psekups River) at a 300-meter distance to the West of the Podnavisla range. Its local name is Chyortov Palets (Devil’s Finger). The construction is very small.

Only two small grounds survived after the blasts carried out by the builders of the road. Now the outcrops of the cultural layer (bones, ashes, fragments of pottery) are visible very well. The peculiarity of this fortress is the preserved reservoirs for water carved into the rock with the traces of trimming.
