Dante Gorge

«Дантово» ущелье

Unusual natural monument, located at the foot of the mountain Abadzehskaya. It is an incredibly beautiful and available for inspection place in the Healing Park on the outskirts of the town Goryachy Klyuch. The gorge was created by nature and people.

Nature separated the mountain slopes by this narrow 100-meter rock fissure (the depth is up to 15 meters). In the 70s of the 19th century the Dante stone staircase was carved along the bottom of the gorge and the glade in front of the entrance was ennobled (springs in these places were swampy; they did not look like resort places. Moreover, there were mosquitoes).

Gradually due to the destruction of rocks caused by the local brook Klyuchevoy, snow and frost, the gorge became a bit deeper and wider.

Dante gorge is named after the Italian poet, thinker and scientist of the Renaissance era Dante Alighieri (1265-1321). His poem Comedy, which was called by the descendants The Divine Comedy, depicts the poet’s wanderings in the underworld.
