Among the most popular among tourists are waterfalls near Krasnodar and Sochi:
- Bolshoi Kaverzinsky, five kilometers from the highway leading from the capital of the region to the village. Khrebtovoe, on the territory of the Goryachy Klyuch resort. It is formed by the Tambovskaya Shchel brook. The height of the rock from which the water falls is more than 10 meters.
- Not far from the Afapostik railway station, there is a whole cascade of waterfalls. The Bolshaya Sobachka River here makes its way through huge mossy boulders scattered over the virgin beech forest. The height of the highest threshold is 35 meters.
- Hundreds of tourists come every summer to see the Pearl Falls both from Krasnodar and from Anapa. It makes noise two kilometers from the village of Bolshoy Utrish, and is formed by the Vodopadny stream. The stream falls onto a rocky beach, through which an ecological hiking trail is laid.
Ayuk waterfall in the Krasnodar Territory is one of the most beautiful. It is formed by the waters of the Burlachenkov Shchel brook, and you can admire the amazing natural miracle in the Goryacheklyuchevsky region. From the village of Fanagoriyskoye, you will have to get here by off-road vehicle, or take a regular bus to the Chepsi River, from where the remaining six kilometers will have to be covered on foot.
The stream of the Ayuk waterfall falls down in two ledges, the height of which is 4 and 5 meters. At the bottom, the waterfall forms a natural pool where you can swim in the white water. It takes this color because of the huge amount of tiny air bubbles.
Another local attraction is the Small Fanagoria Cave above the road. To enter it, you will have to climb a cliff 11 meters high. The length of the underground galleries is almost 30 meters and the cave is of undoubted interest for lovers of speleology.
Crab Cleft and Devil's Mouth
They say that crabs are found in the stream that forms this waterfall 65 km from Krasnodar, for which it got its name. Vodicka falls only from a height of three meters, but the places around are very picturesque. Residents of the nearby village of Ilyinsky go to the forest near the Crab Falls for mushrooms and arrange picnics near it. The water in the Crab Creek is the purest - it is fed by two dozen forest springs.
The name Devil's Mouth only sounds intimidating. In fact, this waterfall, 75 km from Krasnodar on the Maltsev Stream, is a very picturesque place. Water flows down from four ledges with a total of 23.5 meters, and you can get to the Devil's Mouth only on foot from the town of Goryachy Klyuch along the valley of the Maltseva Shchel. The journey will take about two hours.
