The canyon starts from the bridge in the village of Buki, Cherkasy region. Near the bridge is the dam of the old hydroelectric station about two meters high. The dam and the underlying narrow, rapids channel of the Gorny Tikich river form the Vir Falls.
A walk through the canyon can be started right from the waterfall. Even in the spring, in narrow places, you can safely pass over the stones without getting your feet wet. Initially, it is more convenient to go along the right (if you look downstream) shore. There is a well-preserved chute, which supplied water to the hydroelectric power station. It is laid along the main channel, the edge of the gutter is about half a meter wide and most of the road to the hydroelectric station is this region in excellent condition, you can walk along it and admire the rapids on Tikiche.
Near the bridge, the walls of an old water mill are preserved. Now it is being restored and perhaps in 2019 there will already be a functioning cafe or hotel.
Also near the road near the bridge there is a mock well. Next to the bridge is a monument to Lenin, who looks as if there was a hut with a stove there, the hut collapsed, and a bust was placed on the top of the stove. Although it may no longer have a bust.
How to get there!?
The most convenient way is by car. It is better to go through Kiev, because the road through Cherkasy is of very poor quality. From Kiev on the Odessa highway to go south to Zhashkiv, there in the center there is a pointer to Buki. In the direction of the pointer, through the villages of Sorokotyagi and Chervonyi Kut to Buk. You can also drive through Uman (in which Sofiyivka Park): along the same Odessa route, before turning to the village of Mankivka, then through this village to Buki. Be careful, in the Kiev region there are one more Buki - also a village and also with a landmark - an excellent landscaped park, but without a canyon. For accuracy, use the coordinates.
By public transport: To Beech can only be reached through Kiev. From the central station by bus to Zhashkiv. Or from Odessa Square (opposite the Magellan shopping center) - by a private minibus to the same place. From Zhashkiv passing bus to Buki. Buses are usually 3-4 per day, mostly in the morning. The bus schedule can be checked at the Zhashkova bus station at (04747) 6-23-78.
