Travel Information

Very bad road, only on an SUV. Spend the night with a tent
From Odessa it is best to go through Nikolaev, and then along the Southern Bug, through New Odessa and Voznesensk. At the exit of Voznesensk, in front of the church, the right flank. The road to the village of Tricratu is quite tolerable. In the village itself there is a wonderful landmark - the old road, paved with paving stones, is there for you. After about 10 minutes, the Arbuzinsky Canyon will appear on the right. We pass by, drive into the village. The main road turns left and after five minutes rests against the field. Right behind it are the most popular cliffs. The canyon itself is upstream. You need to go there through the fields and the primer. You leave the village, near the tractor base to the right, then along the field to planting - there will be a small passage through it. Further the road goes between the canyon and fishing line.
Crowd Factor Nearly no other people
Best Timing Sunrise during fall
Sunrise & Sunset 06:02 - 19:45 | current local time: 02:41
