The journey begins in Hot Key, where the gorge reminiscent of the entrance to the hell from the "Divine Comedy" by A. Dante, there is also a medieval fortress. After the walk you will go to one of the highest waterfalls in Kuban. In the evening you will have unrestrained fun in the Jurassic park.


Дантово Ущелье

The first stop on the way to the Black Sea coast will be in Hot Key Healing Park, from here the tourist route will take you directly to Dantovo Gorge. The name is creepy, but it makes sense. The entrance to the gorge reminds us of the entrance to hell, described in Dante Alighieri's "Divine Comedy". It was named after the officers who were in treatment in the area. There is another beautiful story associated with this place - early in the morning you can meet a girl who washes herself in the spring. But this girl is not a simple one, but the owner of Dantova Gorge. Next to the gorge is the Iveron Chapel, small and very cozy. Once upon a time there was a spring flowing near it, but due to some natural changes it has dried up. Now there is a monument in its place.
