This bridge is a gate to Irakhiktyuz Valley, also known as Emmanuelle's Glade. The place was named after the Russian infantry general Emmanuelle, who sent his soldiers to storm the top of the Mount Elbrus in 1829 from here. That was the first successful expedition to the top of Elbrus. Nowadays the valley still preserves its wild nature unspoiled. It is normally used as a camping place for climbers heading toward the top of Elbrus. The local station of rescuers is also situated here.

questa passeggiata in mountain bike dev'essere stata molto bella ed interessante.
Avete affrontato paesaggi belli ed estremi con grandissimo piacere per voi, ma anche per noi che godiamo di tante splendide foto. Complimenti.
Un carissimo abbraccio

A place where you can see that nature is in its purest form, this simple bridge is proof of that, passing almost unnoticed without breaking the rugged environment of these large rocks.
By the way I like the variety of color tones of the stones.
No doubt another tough road for cyclists, but the grandeur of the place is worth the effort.
Very good color and light management.

Tezak teren, treba poneti bicikle i opremu ...
Lepo mesto sa visecim mostom, stene, planinski potok i biciklisti, dobra kompozicija.
Dobar trenutak snimka i ugao, lepe boje i fotografija.
Prijatan dan sa lepim secanjima na putovanje kroz surovu prirodu a ipak lepu.
Difficult terrain, to carry bikes and gear ...
Nice place with hanging bridge, rocks, mountain stream and cyclists, good composition.
A good time length and angle, beautiful colors and images.
Nice day with beautiful memories of a journey through the harsh nature and yet beautiful.
All the best.

Хорошее утро Сергей,
Nice presentation of your great bicycle touring. This is an advantageous place for taking a commemorative photo.
It seems that a cyclist on the bridge is wearing a cycling cap, i always put it on even now whenever going on a cycling.
Have a nice day, Hisashi

That looks like a shaky river crossing! Light and colours are fine with good sharpness.
Nice to have a little sky in the corner.

Very interesting and beautiful capture of the passing on the bridge over troubled waters !
What a wild, preserved nature ! I like the contrast between the gushing water, the rough rocks and the green rolling hills in the background.
It's a pleasure to look at this photo.

An another good piece in your interesting serie to the mountain's travell with cycle. Herre too, the attotudes of the sportmen are very well colected. Good framing too with the water very impressive in the FG and the prospect open to the green mountains on the left.

Wunderschöne, unerschlossene Berglandschaft mit gefährlichen Übergängen, eine sehr harte Tour!
Wünsch dir einen schönen Tag
