North of the Laza village and on a terrace on the left bank of the Damiraparan river, there are Mijikh ruins. In the past, the village was built under a huge rock. The stones coming down from the rock have caused a serious damage to the village. Since it was difficult to travel to and fro Mijikh, people have left it. North-east of the Mijikh ruins there are large and rapid waterfalls.
The waterfalls are 7 km from Laza. It takes an hour and a half to get here on horseback. There is no road. The place can be accessed by old Soviet hardware as well, while the last 2 km can only be passed on foot. For those not riding horse, the journey is extremely difficult and dangerous. Even on horseback one spends a lot of energy. In the end, we reach a waterfall. However, it is too early to celebrate because it is only a baby waterfall. Finally, after three hours, we reach the Mijikh waterfall. It is necessary to have a local guide to come here.
It is certainly worth going through these extremes to see this magnificent 54-meter tall waterfall located 20 km from the district center, upwards from the Durja village at the foot of the Caucasus mountain range. To approach it is extremely enjoyable. It takes some time though, as we have to jump over two huge rocks each the size of a truck. Then, between rocks, there is a narrow tunnel which takes you to an enormous pool. The sound of the waterfall is deafening. Since the water falls from a big height, it splashes about. Soaked to the skin, we part from the place full of unforgettable impressions.
