A few ruins on a hilltop overlook the Terek River Valley. To get there you can hike past the two waterfalls Toti (16 meters high) and “Woman’s hair” (10 meters high), then follow the narrow path to the top of the ridge. Around the back of the collection of boulders is a doorway.

The crumbling remains of the castle buildings span multiple centuries. The oldest is a ruined church that was built in the 9th or 10th century. The castle’s ramparts and cannons were built in the late 16th century and the early 17th century.
