You probably know that Dagestan has many beautiful places and impressive constructions. Let’s visit some of them in this post.
In the museum of hydropower engineering you may see models of hydroplants.
Road to a hydroplant
Gergebilskaya hydropower station
One of those who built the station
The generator. Water goes through the piping below (spiral chamber) and makes the working generator wheel rotate. Looks like the most extreme aquapark!
Gunibskaya hydropower station
The unique relief
You still may see the remnants of the fortress that used to encircle this district for dozens or even hundreds of kilometers.
The Khunzakhsky district where they are building Gotsatlinskaya hydropower station. When the construction is over nobody will see these landscapes again.
Temporary spillway for the period of construction
Here will be the dam.
From here water will go to the generators of the working station…
..to flow out from here.
Untsukulsky district, Irganaiskaya hydropower station. It’s unique because the dam is located in one place and the station and the generator are in another place. The tunnel from the dam to the station is 5 km long! Water flowing in it activates the current generator.

Chirkeiskaya hydropower plant just strikes imagination! While you are at the foot of its dam you can’t close your mouth..
They plant trout here!
Trout for dinner, anyone?
On the bottom of the spiral chamber. Soon only water will be here.
Excess water in the dam spills out from here
