Waterfalls and gorge of Nadzhigo

Водопады и ущелье Наджиго

On the Kumyshtepe River, there is a 32 m high waterfall with sheer falling water. Upstream there are 13 more low waterfalls from 5 to 8 meters, but they are difficult to access, there is no path leading to them. A well-maintained path has been laid to the waterfalls on the Gumyshtepe River, equipped in the necessary places with wooden bridges and railings. 280 meters above the confluence with the Kumyshtepe River, there are two waterfalls 4.5 and 6.5 m high.Further along the route, you can see the highest and most beautiful waterfall in this area, Nadzhigo, with height of about 32 m.

A legend tells about the history of this group of waterfalls. A long time ago, a girl lived in these places who sang very beautifully. Years passed, and the girl turned into a beautiful girl. Once, when this girl was walking in the forest and singing, the God of the forest Mizitha saw her and fell in love with her. But he understood that he could not love a mere mortal. He decided to express his love in the form of a gift and created the "Serenade of Love" waterfall, so quiet that his noise did not prevent the girl from singing. The next gift was the waterfall "Pool of Love", on the bottom of which he put treasures. Only the young man who sincerely fell in love with the girl could get them. The last gift was the Font of Love waterfall. Mizitha himself is standing here, but turning away so as not to embarrass the girl.
