forest. In Tustan depending on the weather we can have a dinner in the

water has healing properties. It is supposed to rejuvenate human organism.
Not far from the waterfall there is one more interesting natural monument

its healing effect you will feel at once.
The duration of the excursion depends on your desire (12-13 hours).
