Information -

The Seletinskoe Reservoir is a natural landmark of the region; the famous natural Bestobe Canyon[b] and the [b]Silety River are located here. The places are very popular because they are far from civilization; it is better to go here for two days, take a tent with you and spend the night on the river bank or on the bank of the reservoir. The Bestobe Canyon is an incredibly picturesque place, the river in this place flows so slowly that it looks like a mirror, its waters reflect the entire surrounding area, which creates a magical picture. The only bad thing about these places is that when people come here to relax, they don’t pick up their garbage; you can find heaps of garbage, which creates a depressing picture.
