Guama’s Canyon, the most picturesque and one of the deepest and narrowest canyons of Caucasus Mountains, is situated at the south-east corner of Apsheronsk’s district of
Krasnodar's kray, between villages of Mezmay and Guamka. For more information about the canyon, please see the previous page of this TRAVELOGUE.
About the name of the canyon, I would like to say the following. Actually the name should be "Guamskoe canyon", as its Russian name is "Guamskoe ushchelye". But the word "Guamskoe" can mean either "of Guam", "of Guama" or "of Guamka" (Guam’s, Guama’s or Guamka’s). I have chosen the name "canyon of Guama" ("Guama’s canyon") according to the name of the mountain range, thru which it flows. The Cherkess word "guama" means "bad for the heart".
GPS coordinates: 44.21057 Lat, 39.90804 Long, 593 m

The two tourists give life but too an idea of the imprassive scale of the canyon. I like too the small way and the wood's barrier which give prospect effect nad invite to discovery the place.

nice the view of the canyon with the narrow corridor to lead-in the visitors in it.I like the dense foliage as the excellent light management.

This reminds me of the Vis river canyon, a small river, in Languedoc-Roussillon, France:) Superb hiking course very effectively imaging. Bravo.
Have a nice evening. MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Интересное фото. Люди дают понятие о масштабе.
Недавно вспомнил твои велопробеги, когда увидел серию работ наших ребят. Они по Тибету гоняли на великах. Возник вопрос, а сколько же батарей надо с собой брать? И как хранить, если холода? Наверное, есть свои хитрости?
Удачного Нового года и всех благ!

When I see the satellite photo, a wooded area which must be very pleasant to discover, especially at this period of the year… Apparently the train does not pass any more by there. Beautiful and interesting photograph with a good management of the light and natural colors, thank you Sergiy.
With all my friendships by wishing you an excellent Midnight supper by waiting until 2011,

Stunning beauty of this image with the high canyon walls and is abundant vegetation, the presence of tourists gives us the size ratio, no doubt an ideal place to walk that path that is lost in the curve.
Excellent management of the brightness is not very easy, by the difference in sun and shade areas, a very natural color. Beautiful place.
Have a nice weekend. Best regards.
