This area was stunning if you love history or culture, this area is the place to be, so much natural ancient beauty. During our trip there we stayed with a lovely family who took care of us very well with a professional handling. The beyond the red square company knows how to make these trips everything you hoped for!

It is more than an hour drive from the city toward the great Caucasus mountains, where every valley has its own charm The upper part of the canyon is especially magnificent - make sure you stop inside the long tunnel and go out to have a look at the original old road. The canyon in this place is simply spectacular. The village itself - Upper Balkariya - is amazing. Lots of agriculture, interesting architecture, lovely people and excellent food. The top prize is the short hike to the beautiful watch tower from the 16th century - from which you have the best view of the whole area including part of the Caucasus mountains. It is there that you appreciate the area. Look for the other watch tower on the other side of the valley as well as the modern one story mosque. If you wish to eat - and I strongly suggest you do - avoid the Caravan restaurant (with its caged bear and lion). Instead, eat at the other one which is located 2 buildings away. They serve only local products and their food is amazing as is the setting and the service, Prices are cheaper than Nalchik and the food is much better. Avoid weekends.

A very good place if you seek new knowledge and natural experience. Very eco-friendly, not much modern entertainment and comfort, but plenty of old tower ruins, authentic cuisine and traditional habits.
