Some speleological routes also belong to canyoning – like the sacred Dyurk cave, Gapshim and Tsudakhar caves.
There are many Whitewater rivers in Dagestan. The first rafting events occurred in the region back in 1998, when the Republic hosted the national rafting competition. From that time on rafting is one of the favored extreme types of tourism in Dagestan.
This type of tourist activity is widely recognized in Russia and abroad, and now it has found its place in Dagestan.
