Photo and description
Teshebsky waterfalls are located on the border of Tuapse and Gelendzhik districts, 6 km from the village of Arkhipo-Osipovka. The waterfalls have several names: Gibius, Gebius and even Bigius, but it is most correct to call them Gebeus - from the name of Mount Gebeus (translated as "inverted jug"), or Teshebsky - by the name of the Teshebs river.
The waterfalls occupy the territory of the river bed about 1 km long, in the height range of about 150-250 m. The very first, upper waterfall of this group has a height of 2 m. The waterfall stream, flowing down obliquely, stretches for more than 3, 5 m. Under the ledge there is a drainage bath with a depth of 0.35 m. Behind the bath there is a very gentle 2-meter spillway.

Ten meters downstream you can see another ledge with a height of more than 13 m. This waterfall differs in that above it there is a powerful travertine deposit, filling all the free space between the rocks of the left and right banks of the river. At the foot of the ledge there is a bathtub, the depth of which is 0.4 m.
