History

Kedrovaya Pad is one of the oldest reserves in Russia. It is a unique corner of the Far Eastern nature. It was organized in 1916. The need for its creation was explained by the fact that the intensive economic development of the southern coastal regions of Primorye began in the 1870s due to the emergence of the ports of Vladivostok, Slavyanka and Posyet. In 1908 - 1910 the flow of immigrants to Primorye grew; the western coast of the Amursky Bay was intensively settled.

New villages emerged around Kedrovaya Pad, but there were no settlements in the valley itself due to the limited availability of land for agricultural development. In 1911, “Slavyanskoe” Forestry was organized on the place of the future “Kedrovaya Pad” Reserve. Against the background of the rapidly destroyed forest massifs of the southern Primorye, Kedrovaya Pad was distinguished by the good preservation of virgin forests.



The Russia Expedition - Winter Trans-Siberian Adventure tour starts in Moscow and ends in Vladivostok. The Russia Expedition - Winter Trans-Siberian Adventure is an Expedition tour for 15 days taking you from Moscow to Vladivostok and through other destinations.

Beginning from 1912, the wild nature of the western coast of these places began to undergo significant and rapid changes: massive summer fires began (“burns”, as the locals call them) and started to destroy the forest and its inhabitants. The rapid rate of forest destruction in the southern Primorye inevitably caused the alarm of the foresters about the fate of the unique taiga.

As a result, in 1916, T.L. Gorodetsky, the forester of the “Slavyanskoe” forestry put forward an initiative, according to which the Primorsky Forestry Society decided to preserve a part of the taiga as a specimen of a unique nature and therefore excluded Kedrovaya Pad from the industrial plan.

Ecotourism

Locals recommend visiting Kedrovaya Pad from spring to mid-autumn, when plants are blooming,and  it is interesting to watch the animals. The staff of the reserve developed ecological routes: traveling along them, you can see the place of leopard lying, get acquainted with the ornithological world of the reserve, watch the fish in the Kedrovaya River, which many ecologists consider the benchmark of cleanliness.

The path of the “Leopard's Den” will lead directly to the Barabashevsky cave - it is believed that it is a favorite place of leopards. Of course, you will not be able to go there on your own; experienced guides accompany the tourists all the way.  The reserve has picnic areas, playgrounds and benches.
