Gebius (Tesheb) Falls - photos and how to get there

One of the popular places they come tovacationers from Gelendzhik, are Gebius waterfalls. In principle, you can come from a more distant resort, but you should not expect anything special from this attraction. On the other hand, waterfalls in the Gelendzhi region can be counted on fingers, but there are no high ones, but the mountains are not big at all. Therefore, a trip to the waterfalls should rather be considered simply as a pleasant walk through the forest, as a rest from the heat by the river and closer to nature.

Gebius Falls

Gebius waterfalls have this namethanks to Mount Gebius. They are also called Tesheb, because near the village Teshebs, and Bigius, because then in the Turkic language (like) the top of the mountain will sound like Bigius.

All similar sights in our southThey are made about the same way - a booth with requisitions at the very beginning, and a refined path that goes through the forest to the sightseeing place, be it a waterfall, or a dolmen. As a rule, they simply see that people come to a certain place, rent this land, and begin to take money for the entrance, doing nothing special. At best, they collect garbage and make some dangerous parts of the trail a little safer. Everything is the same here. First, you will pass souvenir shops (they are closer to the entrance), then you will meet various bridges across the riverbed along the way and end the route with a large platform with a cafe, a farm with scenting ostriches and shops with regular souvenirs. Here is the first Gebiusky waterfall.

A shaky staircase leads up to the waterfall,the design is even so naked in terms of security. I do not remember, take the money for the entrance and can not make a normal and safe staircase? Again business in Russian? But apparently, someone has already collapsed, so the announcement hangs that it is impossible to rise more than 10 people at once. Yeah, at least, they took the responsibility off, well done.

Having risen, one can go further, since therethere are a couple of waterfalls, but most people are limited to the first and in principle this is normal. I also decided not to walk, because I had repeatedly walked along similar channels, for example, river Zhaneand imagine what awaits me there. Moreover, there was very little water in the river (it had rained long ago), and there was no point in looking at the waterfalls this time.

The riverbed continues further, the pointer invites to continue the journey.

Please note if you come here in beach slippersand not prone to long walks, and also do not like any coverage, except for asphalt, then you should not go beyond the 1st waterfall. You are unlikely to like to go on the bed, on wet stones, occasionally jumping from stone to stone. I would say that even along this very shaky fire escape ladder, it is not worth climbing if you are not going to continue.

P.S. I was at the Gebius Falls in October, a great time, almost no one. True, there was little rain, so there was little water in the river and waterfalls either. It is advisable to come in spring or summer immediately after a good rain, it will be more spectacular.
