The waterfall is not very spectacular but the legend of its origin is very beautiful, and, of course, about love. According to legend, lived once a lovely girl who was in love with the mountain spirit. The evil sorceress was jealous of the love of the spirit, and decided to destroy it. Luring the girl into an high mountain, she threw her off the cliff. The girl crashed, and before his death, wept bitterly, and so there was a waterfall, as a symbol of lost love.

When a tear fell into the river, the water God rose up and turned the mermaid to stone, and with it turned to stone and Achra, which was in a mermaid in his hands. with the continuation of this legend is linked to another waterfall, located 30 kilometers further down the road - Male tears.

It's all in comparison.
For those who have been in many countries, there is nothing outstanding there.

Been in Abkhazia for a very long time. Everything was fine. Gagra - all a dream. After the Crimea - it was a shock for me personally. The beauty is indescribable. The air is so... words can not betray. And the market is generally a separate conversation about the smell. Bay leaf and spices. But it is not Intrusive. The sea was also great. Stayed at the campsite, as it was in the car with the trailer.
Recently viewed photos of Gagra, Sukhumi - no, I don't want to go there. ...

Was in Abkhazia in 2015, traveled by car with Russian numbers. Given the fact that I previously had read "horror stories" from the forums about Abkhazia, and plus are a motorist who is trying not to violate traffic rules, then after passing the border (stood for 30 minutes on a weekday in late August), I went strictly by the signs... but given the fact that it is not on the road is not clear the situation with the characters, and frankly all the trouble, it is not clear WHERE the town BEGINS, where it ENDS. So drove everywhere 40km per hour, away from sin. Saw a lot of stopped cars at the posts of traffic police workers, and they were all with the Russian numbers. All would be nothing if it were not sharp konstrastom with the ABKHAZ, they have to go 140 on an opposite through the double solid and honk friend gaytsy is normal, the feeling that there are all kin to each other, go on Abkhazian rooms, consider the rules for you do not write. Really a bunch of times cars overtaking into oncoming traffic where double continuous (and this is when there was a restriction 90).
Some people gave advice, you are here for the night don't get up, then the machine Park we have hot molodesh, glass hit, can steal things... thank you damn, of course I understand that good namereniyami, I normally could not sleep, the whole trip stressful...
Apogee was a trip to new Athos monastery before climbing the mountain is a sign of a white circle, travel is limited... stopped, went to ask a local which way, everywhere I read that on a car ride, and women are on the market in a voice they say Yes, you go that way, I do not care what the sign is all go, don't worry, we're not check gaytsov no, you go darling. One is said, did not believe, went further when he heard the same thing 6 times, and I saw the cars there, heaps ...

Was not until 2018, in Abkhazia, and after reading your post it seemed to me that the situation on the roads became better. Problems with the signs of the start/end of settlements have not noticed, and in General the roads are good, just I hate these ugly bumps when 90 need to sharply reduce the speed to 20 :suicide . And with Parking trouble at old: a stranger should not be put where it is possible locally to pay Parking, and all this in the open right under the noses of cops. ...

Hello! Who like to arrive with a link to the border with Abkhazia and after. It is more profitable to take? And is it possible at Adler airport to purchase a SIM card for use in Abkhazia? Thanks in advance) ...
admin 30 July, 2019

No matter any of the two operators take, there is no difference. About airport can't tell always by car went. Only one note: immediately after crossing the border of the Russian SIM cards do not use, communications from America will cost, damn it. ...

Now stationed in Abkhazia under the New Athos, the village of Primorsko. Came here ( on their own, without a vehicle)to receive medical treatment. Crossed the border in 20 minutes, without personal inspection. 10 minutes of hydrogen sulfide, the source of healing mud. Highly recommend for joints and blood purification. What about respect, do not worry, here all have wifi. The SIM card put in airplane mode using 5 km after the border. The money is not removed... spoke calmly by telephone immediately after crossing the border( like a house). A lot of minibuses, the fare is cheap. Before Athos was 200 RUB., 1 hour 20 mins with a breeze. All Abkhazians are very friendly, always ready to help and give. If you do not stay in a hotel, very cheap. The private sector 350-500 RUB 2-bed room per day. You can negotiate with food. The food they serve is phenomenal! All a good journey. ...
