17th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Mountain landscapes of Ingushetia
The Russian Caucasus is practically unfamiliar to most tourists. There are no good roads to many places here, no Internet and food, and local residents are not always ready to show the way. But if you are in search of the original beauty, you should take a chance and go towards the unknown. So we did when we went to the Assinsky Gorge of Ingushetia. Many legends of the local people are associated with this place, one more fantastic than the other. But in our opinion, the best legend is the one that you can see and feel personally. So it really happened!
