The most famous waterfalls of Bashkortostan

Many residents of Bashkiria, not to mention other people, do not even guess that there are many waterfalls in the republic. In general, almost all the waterfalls of the Southern Urals are located in Bashkortostan. In addition to those in the mountains, there are still located in the more western areas, where there are no mountains as such.

The waterfalls of Bashkiria, the list of which is quite extensive, is not as large as, for example, in the North Caucasus. However, for residents of most Russian regions, where they do not exist at all, they are very attractive for their beauty and accessibility. It is best to visit waterfalls in the spring, when they have a lot of water. But at such a time and get to them more difficult.


This is the biggest waterfall in Bashkiria, whose height is about fifteen meters. It is located not far from Sibay. Because of the broken road in the spring to reach it is quite difficult. Having reached the camp site, in any case, it will take several kilometers to walk, but it's worth it!

The waterfall is a complex natural monument of Bashkiria (botanical, geological, geomorphological) since 1965 and is under state protection. The flora of the surroundings includes over 270 species of plants, including endemics and relics.

The original beautiful land where Gadelsha is located is the birthplace of many famous Bashkir singers, kurais, sesen. Here the well-known sasen Mahmut worked and lived, from here in the world of great art came kurayst, artist and singer Gata Suleymanov.


Many waterfalls of Bashkiria are popular with the population, but Atysh is perhaps the most visited by tourists. It has a height of 4.5 meters, its origin is due to the activities of the two rivers - Agui and Atys, who laid their valleys in the formation of limestones of the Lower Carbon Age, which are characterized by high karst formation. These rivers originate in the Lemezin interfluve, on the top of the watershed of Iken.

The Atysh waterfall is a complex nature monument, including a number of ponoras, caves, and underground streams of streams. The fauna and rare plants of the surrounding area are protected. Until recently, the taimen spawned in the water-boiling boiler of the waterfall. Before this natural object can be reached by several routes. Most popular: by the river Lemes by car or by train to the 71st kilometer, and then by foot through the rivers Lemesu and Inzer.


This waterfall is located near the Nugush reservoir. The height reaches fifteen meters. From beneath the arch of the karst bridge there are places of unspoilt nature of amazing beauty. From all sides the white rocks rise dazzlingly . The Karst Bridge and the Cooper as objects of karst formation inevitably attract the attention of a huge number of tourists and specialists. You can get to these objects during rafting on Nugush or by car, however it should be a prepared off-road car. It should be borne in mind that during the summer period, the Cooper completely dries up.

Bashkortostan. Waterfall Cook-Karauk

This landmark is located in the mountainous part of Ishimbay district. A small beautiful waterfall consists of several cascades of a creek with the same name. The largest cascade is two to three meters high.

Cook-Karauk is a complex nature monument, which is a cluster of interesting objects and beautiful landscapes. Within a radius of three or four kilometers, there are caves, a 120-meter cliff. If you go from Sterlitamak to Beloretsk on the Beloretskaya tract, you can come very close to the Kuk-Karauku, only it is desirable that the car was slightly inflated clearance.


Comparing the waterfalls of Bashkortostan, one can conclude that Abzanovsky is the most easily accessible. On the asphalt, you can drive almost to the waterfall itself, the last hundred meters are a fenced territory with a paid entrance. But you can go around and without money admire this natural miracle.

The waterfall is a small stream that falls from a height of six meters from a steep rocky shore to the Inzer River. In the mid 60-ies of the twentieth century it did not exist at all, and in tourist guides this place was called as the Rock of Weeping. But years have passed, and the water has done its work. So the waterfalls of Bashkiria were replenished with one more.

In the summer, the Abzanov stream almost completely dries up and only oozes over the rock, due to which its surface becomes a mirror. Hence the second name of the waterfall appeared - Zerkalny. The cliffs formed by carbonate rocks were abundantly covered with moss, and the water on its emerald-green background flows along the rocks, and in some places falls in small cascades. Even trickles really create the illusion of a mirror.


Describing the waterfalls of Bashkortostan, one can not fail to mention this object. The waterfall is in the gorge of the river of the same name, a hundred meters from the entrance to the Kapova cave. Shulgan represents a ledge in a drying bed, like the entire gorge formed in the limestones of the Upper Devonian.

The most active waterfall is in spring, autumn and early summer. Powerful jets of water emit a strong noise, plummeting into a limestone boiler. During the passage of snow thawed waters Shulgan looks particularly impressive and majestic. And in the summer it turns into a barely streaming stream. In winter the ledge is covered with ice. It seems that the raging torrent froze in an instant.


In the article we did not list all the waterfalls of Bashkiria. There are also others, for example Atyshumgang, located in Beloretsk district. Many tourists who came to the republic wish to visit the Maryina Falls with tears. Bashkiria, which not everyone knows about, does not have such a natural object. It is located in the Chelyabinsk region, although in the immediate vicinity of the border with Bashkortostan, near Lake Bannoe.
