Photographer's Note

The best way to get into Zhilasu Valley seen in the picture is driving from Kislovodsk (Stavropol Kray) through the village of Kichi-Balik (around 20 km, Karachevo-Cherkessia) and Valley of Narzans tourist centre (extra 20 km, Kabard-Balkariya) to the Emanuel Field (about 70 km from the city) at the foot of Mount Elbrus and near this valley, which is famous for its sources of warm (+22.4C the whole year round) mineral water (Zhilasu means Warm Water) and waterfalls. After Kichi-Balik the road becomes unpaved.
