Paltau valley
The valley of Paltau river is a unique place where people of the both branches of mankind used to live more than 50 000 years ago: primitive man and homo sapiens. There, in the grotto "Obi-Rakhmat", at the beginning of XXI century the archeologists discovered the remains of the Paleolithic man and the anthropologists proved the fact of primitive man and homo sapiens mixing. Why people chose the place for settlement in the valley? Because of rich flora and fauna, spring waters, favorable climate... or caves and grottos which could serve as places for location and an ambush for hunting? Or may be something else which we still don’t know? 
At present time Paltau valley is a closed nature preserve territory.

Participation in the offered tours will give you an opportunity:

  • to feel the aura of the valley;
  • to admire the beauty of waking up spring scenery;
  • to see a great waterfall and flowering of tulips;
  • to relax in the birch grove and enjoy a tasty picnic;

  • to get more useful information about the region;
  • and…to test yourself in a new game!
