The autumn riot of color combines with the bends of the Berd River, which you can observe from the top of the Berd Rocks. This comfortable walk through the autumn forest will take you away from the stress of the city. The second part of the excursion is dedicated to the Holy Spring. Here you can drink holy water and take a dip in a plunge pool. You can also visit Belovo Waterfall and Buchilo Waterfall.
In the 20th century, the Iskitimskiy Penal Camp of SibLAG (a cruel back breaking camp) was located here. At the place of yet another terrible massacre, a spring of crystal clear water sprang up, which people believe to be holy.
