Devil’s bridge (Sheitan) under the dam wall
Devil’s bridge (Sheitan) under the dam wall A deep narrow canyon-like defile exists on Arda river near by the dam wall. It is around 1km long and is called Sheitan (Devil) by local people. In the narrowest places the rocks are almost vertical with height from 5m to 10m. The river is from 1m to 6m wide and with depth up to 20m. Before the dam wall was built a constant scary rumble was heard from the place. Nowadays the gorge has less water, but still impresses with its sizes. The landscape is very picturesque. Note: It is suitable for tourism in combination with the above described abrasive wells.
