Sunlight over Dargavs
In the Caucasus there are many gorges worth visiting. But there is one special that will forever remain in memory. His name is Karmadon, and it is located in North Ossetia. There are no good roads here, in winter the snow carries passages in the rocks, and rare settlements become cut off from the world. For centuries, Ossetians lived here, and only recently opened their hospitality to rare tourists. From now on, the beauty of these places is open up to the world, and it is impossible not to admire it!
