Shkotovskiy waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls of our region. It hides in the pictorial canyon of ancient plateau (Shkotovskiy plateau). Walls of the canyon have interesting structure – it looks like huge hexahedrons, staying closer one by one, that makes you think it is human’s hands creation! The waterfall has classic form. In winter it sleeps – shining wall of the ice under the cedar’s and spruce’s branches shows us unbelievable picture!
Sixteen meters waterfall Gorbatiy staying not far from the federal road – just ten kilometers. It is in the rock canyon “Lastochkino gnezdo”(swallow’s nest) on the Gorbatiy spring. There are figured rock columns “Karandashi” (pencils, nature monument). There is also a rare relict yew down the road, which is seven hundred years old already and putted in the Red Book of the Russian nature. Also you can find footsteps of wild animal, even the Amur Tiger – the owner of the taiga.
