During the entire route, moving along the Main Ural Range (GUKH), which is a unique and very marvelous place on the map, we will constantly see the Kvarkush Plateau and the closed top of Denezhkin Stone, which is located on the territory of the reserve.

The uniqueness of this part of our trip lies in the fact that we will always be above the horizon line - this will allow us to contemplate the landscapes of the Perm and Sverdlovsk regions.
Zhigalan waterfalls are a very picturesque place and for many Ural people is unusual, because there are not so many waterfalls here. They received their name from the Zhigalan River, which runs along rocky canyons, thereby forming waterfalls, the largest of which has a height of 15 m.

The Kvarkush Plateau is a unique place. Its height is about 1000 meters above sea level, the weather on it can be very changeable. Snow on the plateau may lie evenly until the end of June. There is a so-called "Alpine meadows" - a very beautiful and unusual place.
Andrei Ivanov's hut. It was built in a picturesque place by friends and relatives of the tragically dead Andrey. He was a famous traveler and a good man.

The house is equipped with everything you need to stay in it.

Maria Prokhorova
On quad bikes in the South Urals
Returned the day before yesterday from the tour! I liked everything so much! Only positive and vivid emotions and memories remained. The guide Artem organized everything amazingly, there were no hitches! Be sure to turn again and more than once!
Nikolay Ovchinnikov
Auto-trip to the Pamir Mountains
I liked everything, the organization is just a bang! But the main thing is nature itself. There are simply no words, very beautiful, free, indescribable paint! In general, we have never regretted that we have chosen the Pamir as the main place for your vacation this summer.
Sergey Fomin

I want to express my gratitude for the organization of a great holiday. There was not a single lining. Everywhere met, warmed, fed. Instructor Artem is just awesome. Everyone got great pleasure!
