So, let's go on an exciting journey and choose the most interesting excursions in North Ossetia in 2021.

The best routes of the republic

Ancient Digoria

Mountain Digoria is rightfully called the pearl of North Ossetia. The local landscapes are breathtaking. Just looking at the gorge with overhanging rocks and seething waters makes you dizzy.

Traditionally, the excursion starts from the "main gate" of Digoria - Akhsinta canyon (Urukh canyon). Here you can see a magical view of the Iraf (Urukh) River, which has broken through a narrow canyon at a depth of over 100 meters, and karst springs, which plunge into the depths in the warm season, and turn into blue waterfalls and icicles in winter.

The Devil's Bridge is thrown over the abyss across Urukh, which is used today as an observation deck. Some are afraid to even approach the cliff, but fans of extreme recreation jump from the bridge on a rope.

The excursion includes a visit to ancient villages. A medieval frigate castle is located at an altitude of about one and a half thousand meters above sea level. And in the village of Donifars there is a watchtower of Yesse Kanukov, built in the 16-18 centuries and named so in honor of the valiant warrior.

To the north of the village of Zadalesk is the Digori-Izad sanctuary, and in Matsuta there is a crypt that belonged to the legendary hero of the Nart epic Ossetians Nart Soslan.

A tour of Digoria can take several days and the guides offer different routes depending on the budget and fitness of the tourists.
