The Lago-Naki Plateau can be called the hallmark of the Caucasian Reserve.
A large number of tourists begin their acquaintance with the KGPBZ (Caucasian State Natural Biosphere Reserve) from here, climbing the peaks of the Fisht-Oshten mountain range - Oshten (2804m.), Pshekha-Su (2743m. ), Fisht (2867m.)
But sometimes it is not necessary to pack a large backpack and go on a multi-day route to be surrounded by mountains, alpine meadows, and rocks from which will take your breath away. That is why the Lagonaki Highlands are very popular among fans of weekend hikes.
Highway "Dakhovskaya - Lago-Naki", passing along the Azish-Tau ridge to the ridge. The Stone Sea has a huge number of viewpoints, which are definitely worth visiting not only for those who are passing here for the first time. I think that avid lovers of LDPE of the Krasnodar Territory will also be able to discover new attractions after reading this article.
Many locations are "wild", so I must inform you: we never allow ourselves to litter anywhere, and whenever possible we pick up garbage that is left behind by "would-be tourists". We advise you to do the same!
Let's start with the viewpoints of the ridge. Azish-Tau in the direction of Lago-Naki

A mountain hike is the passage of a given route, of a certain difficulty, autonomously in the natural environment. The main factors affecting a person in a mountain hike will be mountainous terrain and high mountain climate.
If you bought a ticket at a travel agency, then you go on a mountain hike in the company of absolutely strangers, differing in culture, age and physical fitness. In order for a mountain hike to bring you joy and pleasure, you need to stock up on a positive mood at home. There is nothing that brings people together like communication in a narrow team in conditions. Therefore, at the end of the hike, you will have some good friends.
The mountain hike has the following characteristics:
2. The route of the hike is laid by the instructor-guide based on his knowledge of the terrain, cartographic material and description of the route
I can hardly call myself a climber - I went a few "ones" for a couple of badges. I just like to go to the mountains, but I don't get to do it often. For this reason, I decided to expand the horizons near my home, and since my native land is not "mountainous" but "water", the choice fell on kayaking and kayaking.
During the year I reviewed 4 models of kayaks. In fact, there were many more of them, but only those that I was ready to buy based on the allocated budget will be presented here.
This was the first boat I turned my attention to. Its production is in St. Petersburg and I was hoping to get a kayak quickly before my desire burned out.
In April last year, I did just that, placed an order and answered the manager's call, from whom I learned that it would take about a month to make the boat. I canceled the order and went to the mountains, at this the first stage of my kayak selection was completed.
This kayak model was the second I took a look at the following spring. She, like Barbarian-480, was relatively inexpensive and, at first glance, met all my requests.
It could be quickly ordered, received within a few days, and tested on the water during the May holidays. But, unlike last year, I decided not to make hasty actions and wondered what I expect from my kayak. Why do I need it?
Sports hike 1 room. Duration - 9 days. It takes place on the territory of the KChR. Designed for beginners and experienced tourists.

The lake in the mountains is called Kardyvach and the path to it passes through the long valley of the Mzymta River. During the golden period, we visited the world of a mountain lake, felt its aroma, energy; admired the beauty and fullness of early autumn colors. This is romance, but now everything is in order. A story about how we visited a lake in the mountains.
Dr. Dr. We are driving a UAZ. The car now floats in the mud, then puffs in the road dust. 22 (twenty two) kilometers of mountain serpentine from the village of Esto-Sadok to Engelmanova glade. The old lumber road is complaining. For a long time it was not leveled, not put in order, but many want to get to the cherished lake in the mountains.
Top. Top. It was we who left the comfortable Russian jeep - an all-wheel drive UAZ and went out onto the hiking trail. At first it is wide, then narrows. On the left is the mountain - the slope of the Main Caucasian ridge - the famous Aishkhi. Under the mountain, the river - the noisy Mzymta, runs in a hurry to the Black Sea. Mzymta is bubbling in the gorge, frightening travelers on the trail.
There is a mountain in the Caucasus - the Highest. on that mountain the river is the deepest.
Suppose our mountain is not the highest, and the river is not the deepest under the mountain. Only the beauty of Mzymta and the riot of colors have attracted tourists for more than a year to the cherished lake - the source of the noisy Mzymta. Lake in the mountains - a pearl to the Caucasus Mountains - Lake Kardyvach.
We stomp groaning. Backpacks creak, mocking tourists. Stop. The weather is getting worse. We will spend the night in a dense spruce forest.
It is raining in the open glades, there are wet burdocks and crocuses, and we sit in a dense spruce forest, drink sweet tea and dream of a lake between the mountains. Everyone is looking forward to meeting the famous blue lake. Lightning thunders and flashes in the mountains. We decide not to be afraid. Hang up.
Valley of the Mzymta River. Unique nature. Relic plants
Valley of the Mzymta River. Faded colors of autumn
