- Divnogorskaya vidovka
We believe that you should definitely know how to get to a place with stunning views of the city of Divnogorsk! It is located on the left bank of the Yenisei, opposite the central square and the waterfront of Divnogorsk.
The route to Divnogorskaya Vidovka, depending on the time of year, takes on average 4 hours, in the opposite direction you will move a little faster and get there in 3.5 hours. During a leisurely walk, you will have time to arrange a small picnic, a photo session against the backdrop of endless taiga, rocky shores and views of Divnogorsk and Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric power station. The length of the walking part in both directions is 13.8 km.
The line of the route runs partly along the ridge; most of the trail runs along the Malaya Listvennaya stream. The path neatly bends around the hills, very slowly going up, providing a smooth climb. Coming out of the taiga into an open space, you are amazed by the beauty of the place and the height. Divnogorskaya vidovka is located on the top of a mountain range at an altitude of about 400 meters above the Yenisei.
Fresh air, a small number of tourists, breathtaking views of the steep cliffs, panoramas of Divnogorsk, the hydroelectric power station and the Yenisei attract travelers who are in love with Siberian nature.

How to get to the Divnogorskaya Vidovka observation deck?
Option number 1 (mostly winter option)
Starting the way along the bank of the Yenisei, you need to go to the trail to the left, where the ascent begins up the ravine into the mountains. This path will lead you in an easier, but longer way (+2 km) to the vidovka. First, you will have to walk along the stream - it may not freeze everywhere, therefore it is necessary to cross it in compliance with safety rules (also in the warm season), then the trail goes through the forest. Keep in mind that the snow can be quite deep in winter. The trails are marked and color coded: "Marathon" "Railway station Karaulnaya - Divnogorsk".
Option number 2 (suitable for cold and warm seasons)
Instead of "Divnogorskaya vidovka" you can climb the ridge. Go to the trail to the left, where the ascent begins up the ravine into the mountains. The climb is quite steep at times here. But there are more beautiful places along the way. Go up and up and the view of Divnogorsk, Yenisei and beautiful rocks opens up in front of you more and more. From here, if there is no fog, the bridge and the Krasnoyarsk hydroelectric power station are clearly visible. This route is suitable for those who do not like long climbs; here you can climb any ledge and make a halt.
