The mountain pass «Shumaksky» connects valleys of the rivers Ekhe-Ger and Levy Shumak. The height of the pass is 2760 meters. From Shumak springs there is a trail in the forest zone, along the river shore. Approximately in 10 kilometers the forest becomes alpine meadows and rocky placers (kurumniki). Just above the timberline three rivers flow together, here Levy Shumak forms. You can also see here the most beautiful waterfall. The water falls into a deep canyon with a height of 30 meters. Then the trail passes along the middle stream, where in about 1,5 kilometers of ascent, from the left side there is a view on a mountain cirque and a large lake. The cirque is divided into two parts by a small branch. Ascent on the pass is steep, from 30 to 50 degree on the last few meters. The crest of the pass is narrow, about two meters. On the saddle of the pass there is an "obo" and a beautiful view on the valley of Ekhe-Ger river.
