Weekend jeep tour Sunny Valley of Ingushetia
The Republic of Ingushetia is rich in objects of ancient civilization, medieval spirit and enchanting nature. Each tower complex, and there are several dozen of them in the valleys of the republic, has a rich past. They take their history from the 12th-17th centuries to the present day, without restoration, and are very well preserved. Of course, not all of them, but even the ruins of some are shocking in scale. Within the walls of each such complex, without exception, there are legends that are known on the ground. There are sanctuaries, mausoleums, and crypts preserved. Separate elements from older epochs and more. Nature deserves special attention. Alpine meadows, mountains, waterfalls and mountain rivers are truly a resort area with the cleanest air. We recommend using a prepared off-road vehicle on the route.
