After breakfast at the hotel, go to the main attraction of Dagestan - Sulak Canyon. You can approach it by E-50, but it is better to make a detour along the regional highway that goes through Buynaksk. The route goes straight along the shore, views of Chirkei Reservoir open from several points. Stop wherever it seems beautiful - you get just great photos here!

View of Sulak Canyon

Scenic Lookout
Open Details
The first viewpoint (far from being the most popular, but very picturesque) is located right after Chirkei hydroelectric power station. You need to leave the highway, stop, walk for about 10 minutes towards the canyon along the country road and... be dumbfounded by the dizzying view! Sulak Canyon is the deepest canyon in Europe, it is even deeper than American Grand Canyon! Many consider it the brightest and most breathtaking sight in Dagestan. Standing on its edge, it would be hard to argue with that.
