    We arrive at lunch point, located on the slopes of Mount Fiziabgo. From there we go to the gorge of the Fars River, it is located 3 kilometers from the village. Even on the sunniest day, the canyon is gloomy. It seems that the high, wooded walls of the gorge close overhead. Their height here reaches sixty meters. In the rocks one can see the dark gaps of shallow grottoes and caves. The bottom of the canyon is dotted with boulders of various shapes and sizes.

    By bus + on foot 10 km. Inspection of the Mishoko river gorge.

    Exercise in the morning, breakfast and go. We will follow the trail to the Mishoko River gorge, many waterfalls, stone paths and grottoes will meet us on the way throughout the entire ascent. Mishoko translated from Circassian means "Bear Valley". We will walk along narrow rocky paths, see the "Anvil" waterfall, so named for its unusual shape and the loud noise with which the water breaks against a lying stone. Today is going to be a hard and busy day.

    DAY

    Funicular + walk 10 km. Una-goat ridge. Damn Finger.

    Today we will use the funicular to climb to the very top of the Una-Koz (Skalisty) ridge. There, along narrow paths, among lush greenery growing right above the cliffs, we will begin our journey to the main attraction of this evening - the Devil's Finger rock. This rock of an unusual shape is a favorite place for tourists and for good reason, a beautiful panorama opens up here: the Front Range and its most famous peak - Bolshoi Tkhach, the mountains of the Main Caucasian Range and, of course, the majestic Lagonaki Highlands - the Lago-Naki plateau and the crowning Fisht -Oshtensky array. Below, at the confluence of the Belaya and Dakh rivers, the village of Dakhovskaya is spread, and in the distance, among the forests, the village of Ust-Sakhrai is visible. After rest and a snack, we go down to the village of Dakhovskaya, on the way inspecting the huge Dylyny grotto, and taking some water from local springs.

    In March 2018, I once again visited the Water Riviera. The complex has increased markedly. An additional large pool and closed gazebos appeared, cottages were completed. New photos and impressions have been added to the article, information has been updated.

    It is gratifying to observe the development of tourism in Russia. It may not be developing by leaps and bounds, but nevertheless interesting routes and places appear.

    The first time I heard about thermal springs in Adygea was about 2 years ago, and last week I visited it myself. We can say that the reportage is straight from the wheels!

    Basically people go “to the waters” to the village of Mostovskaya, which is located 200 km from Krasnodar. We went to the village of Tulsky. It's just geographically closer to Belorechensk, where I actually rested. From Maikop, the capital of Adygea, to Tula is generally a stone's throw. Just some 12 km.

    There are at least four thermal complexes in Tula: Water Riviera, Aqua Thermo, White Nights and Kedrovy Bor. Since we had never been to any of them before, we chose almost at random.

    First we stopped at “Aqua-Thermo”, inquired about prices and looked into the territory. The complex has one large swimming pool, for adults a ticket for the whole day costs 600 rubles. The complex has been working since 10 am, and we arrived at about 9. 0. It was lazy to wait and we moved on.

    Next to Aqua Thermo there is another complex - the Water Riviera. There are already 5 swimming pools with different water temperatures and the prices are a little calmer. Actually, this is where we landed.

    The territory of the complex is small, but nevertheless, the administration has placed everything you need here: changing rooms, swimming pools, gazebos and even guest houses.

    Specially photographed for memory the periodic table contained in water and diseases that water heals.

    The changing rooms in the complex are shared, with individual lockers and a shower. There is a large dining room where you can have a bite to eat. All holidaymakers can safely bring food and drinks with them. You can fry kebabs if you take pickled meat and coals with you. After swimming in thermal water, I want to eat atrociously)). If you have not taken care of a snack, then you can dine at a cafe.

    In the first pool, the water temperature is 34 degrees, in the second - 18, the children's pool is the hottest - 39 degrees, and in the fourth pool, the water temperature is 36 degrees. The new pool has a comfortable temperature of 37 degrees. I draw your attention to the fact that water has a taste and smell. Feels salty, and smells a little oil.

    Above were photos of 2016, and below I have attached fresh photos of 2018. The first time we came on weekdays and, as you can see, there are not many tourists. The second time we got to the Water Riviera was on Saturday and it was trash. To be honest, I was stunned by so many people. The huge dining room was packed to capacity. We barely found a free table for ourselves. And it was no longer so easy to swim in the pools. However, see for yourself.

    The Lago-Naki Plateau is the most famous place for Russians to relax at hot springs. Incredibly picturesque landscapes: mountains, gorges, rivers and fresh air combined with hot balneological waters - what else do you need to be happy?

    The peculiarity of the Lagonaki area is that it is mountainous and it is here that many underground hot springs find their way out. Many of them were known in antiquity, while some were discovered only in the 20th century. All this influenced the development of local tourism: most of the hotels and recreation centers in Lagonaki today are built on hot springs. We will describe in detail about the 8 most famous of them in our review.

    White River

    The complex has a large territory with cozy rooms in wooden houses of various levels of convenience and comfort. The territory offers a view of the Azish-tau rocks.

    The base offers a wide variety of services. There is a restaurant on the territory, and some houses also have a wood-fired sauna. There is also a territory for active sports, there is a bicycle rental and organized tours.

    Cost of hotel accommodation, 1 day for 2 people:

    • Deluxe Double with 1 bed and balcony - 3900 ₽.
    • Family suite with balcony - 4600 ₽.
    • Suite with balcony - 6300 ₽.
