Polikarya waterfall, translated from Greek Bogatyrs or as it is often called in the common people "Pants" for its forked shape, is considered the highest waterfall in Sochi and one of the highest in Europe – almost 70 m.

It is located on the Aibga ridge (fed by a glacier on its top), near the village of Krasnaya Polyana. The height of the waterfall is approximately 70 m. It is located in the zone of subalpine meadows. Even in June and July, there is snow near the Polikarya Waterfall.

The route to the waterfall is laid along a winding mountain road that rises through a zone of beech forest and reaches an altitude of almost 2000 meters above sea level. Just thirty minutes by the offroader, and the goal of the trip is achieved. Polikarya waterfall with its virgin beauty and uniqueness evokes the feeling of admiration. It offers a beautiful panorama of the mountain peaks and spurs of the Main Caucasus Range.

Without special equipment, one is able to enjoy the views of the Main Caucasian Ridge by taking the cable car of the Krasnaya Polyana resort to the heights. A breathtaking panorama of Krasnaya Polyana and mountain peaks opens from the highest point of the resort, from The black Pyramid peak.

Excursions to waterfalls and walking among high-altitude flowering meadows do not require serious physical training, but are quite within the powers of any healthy person.

Such simple mountain walks can be taken by the whole family, even with young children.

To ascend by cable car, one needs to purchase a ticketto the appropriate markat the ticket offices of Krasnaya Polyana resort.
