The high-mountain lake of  Ritsa is waiting for us. On the way to this beautiful place you can enjoy wonderful views of the Caucasus mountains  snow-capped peaks and enjoy the rushing noise of the impetuous mountain river that will accompany us almost all the way to the lake.


Crossing the river over the suspension bridge you can feel its power and energy. But this is only the beginning of vivid impressions.

Because of the route of individual tour to lake Ritsa runs through the famous Yupsharsky canyon the 400-foot cliffs will surround you from all sides, creating the impression that you are in a stone bag.




Very beautiful and picturesque views of the surrounding nature will not leave anyone indifferent. Two most attractive waterfalls "Men's tears" and "Milk waterfall" will come across our way. The ancient yew-boxtrees will add their bright note to the surrounding color.



The beauty of the lake of Rica will not leave anyone indifferent. No wonder that Stalin himself chose this place for one of his country cottages . That's where we will direct after a short stop at the lake observation deck. You can see the lake from the opposite side. And consider yourself lucky. Because the access to this country cottage is only possible for individual tours to Lake Ritsa. As for  group tours  Stalin's dacha is closed.


You will be allowed to walk around the house and listen to the most interesting story about this historic place.


On the way back another unique place is waiting for you - a waterfall of milk.
