Tokovsky (Sholokhov) cascading waterfall! "The waterfall on the Kamenka River in Tokov granites, a monument of nature of local importance" - so says the granite slab at the entrance to the waterfalls. According to legend, these stones were formed from the necklace of the Cimmerian princess Tamiris, who threw him into the river, escaping from the Scythians. Scientists also believe that these waterfalls formed during the Mesozoic era, that is, more than 60 million years ago! And the famous ataman Peter Kalnyshevsky, if you believe the legend, it is here that he hid his treasures - 150 thousand in silver, earned for the sale of horses. Therefore, this waterfall is called not only Tokovskiy and Sholokhovsky (according to the names of the nearest settlements), but also Kalnyshevsky ..
