Buky Canyon

Buky Canyon is one of the most picturesque places in Ukraine, located on Hirsky Tikych river (Mankivsky district, Cherkasy region). The canyon was formed of 2 billion years old Proterozoic granites, it is approximately 5 km (3 miles) long, 20 m (22 yd.) deep and from 20 to 40 m (65 – 130 ft) wide. There is a waterfall called Vyr (vortex) at the beginning of the canyon with the fragments of XIX century windmill.

There are also ruins of the first Ukrainian water-power plant nearby. In one place the canyon rocks form a stone gate, which resembles the world-famous Stonehenge, and in another place the rocks overhang the water, creating an unusual landscape for Ukraine – almost like a fjord.
