Orekhovsky waterfall in Sochi
Orekhovsky waterfall is located on the edge of geographyGreater Sochi. It is necessary to leave along Plastunskaya Street, which passes into Dzhaparidze Street and runs along the river Sochi. The last couple of kilometers is an unpaved rocky road, carved into the side of a mountain. Without pavement, without sites for oncoming vehicles with oncoming traffic, which, however, does not prevent the locals from cheerfully dismounting on the precipice. After receiving a lot of impressions, I got out of the car on a fairly spacious parking lot about 200 meters from the end point. Actually, you could easily walk there, leaving the car at the end of the asphalt road, if you are not confident in your abilities.
It was possible to park further - roadwent down to the river and then up. But they decided to take a walk with friends, all the more so as it’s close by. Final parking is located directly in front of the recreation area fence. More than 10 covered pavilions with a barbecue area, tables and benches scattered over a large area under old tall trees. Later, I found authentic log gazebos downstairs, on both sides of the river - on the other side of the waterfall.
Orekhovsky waterfall is at the end of the steepmetal ladder with several spans. Going down, you find a cozy backwater and a stream falling vertically from the rocks. They explained to me that we very successfully got here after three days of rain, so the waterfall impressed even the Sochi guys. Nearby there is a cool ledge where you can take selfies and show the scale of the waterfall in comparison with yourself. The ledge is not quite obvious, so I understood about it only when the local climbed there.
Information to visit
The entrance to the territory is free, there are 2 parking lots, the second one is next to the gazebos.
Arbor for a picnic is from 500 rubles a day.
In the summer season, there is very little from the waterfall, so do not be discouraged - the river does not dry out, so there is always fresh there.
