Tour to North Ossetia Alania

The Alagir community is considered to be the oldest in Ossetia. It also used to be the most densely populated in its time, and our ancestors left quite a lot of architectural and historical monuments, part of which hasn't been studied up to now. The territory of the canyon is sure to attract the excursionists and travellers'attention.

The trip's itinerary:

On our way from Vladikavkaz to Alagir, where the Trans-Caucasian highway begins, we visit Khetag's holy grove — the most esteemed shrine in the plains of Ossetia. A stop is made near the health resort "Tarn isk" in Nykhas canyon, at the shrine of Nykhasy Uastyrdzhy (the pagan analogue of St. George in Orthodox Christianity). Having passed the village of Unal we go up along a mountain path to the old Ossetian villages Tsamad and Dagom.Then we'll go to the place of the medieval Ossetian trial. Having come down to the village of Ursdon we'll get acquainted with the medieval historical and archeological monuments, burial vaults, shrines, cave fortresses. The village of Indzhynta with two towers and very interesting burial vaults with painted facades is our next stop. After the excursion we'll come down to the village of Zintsar, get on a bus and return to Vladikavkaz.

Don't forget to tike a photo- or video camera, as what you will see on the itinerary is worth fixing.

Pocket food containing carbohydrates, such as biscuits, sweets, dried fruits is used for quick refreshment. Sour sweets and dried fruits also prevent your mouth from getting parched.
