Objective of the project

Based on the results of the project, route descriptions, a classification of the difficulty of the rapids and instructions for descending will be compiled. In addition, recreation areas and maps of the region's services have been created. A guide to the Lenderka River will be published, the main provisions of which will be translated into German, Russian and English and posted on the Internet.
