Nature of Adygea

Adygea mountains

Adygea is the most picturesque corner in the Caucasus, with a special flora and fauna. Visiting Adygea, you can see mountains, lakes, steppes, forests.

For a person, mountains have always been something amazing, beautiful. Humanity constantly wanted to conquer the mountains, because from there a magnificent panoramic view opens up. The Adygea mountains are no exception. There are many majestic peaks in the republic, from where everyone has the right to enjoy the beauty of nature to their fullest.

Mount Monk

According to an ancient legend, one of the monks once settled on this mountain and began to atone for his sins. It seemed to him that one prayer was not enough, and then he decided to knock out the face of the saint in the rock. There is a version that this image was created as a result of the weathering of rocks. The face is visible to this day.

In Adygea, this mountain is the most visited and famous, it is located near the northern edge of the small village of Khamyshki. Its height is almost 1060 meters above sea level. A huge plus for tourists is the flat top of the mountain and the presence of mountain springs. However, before conquering the top of this mountain in hot weather, you will definitely have to take the right amount of water. The fact is that under the scorching sun the springs dry up.

Mountain Letter

The Bukva mountain in Adygea is no less famous. It is located 12 kilometers from the small farm Guamka. Its height above sea level is exactly 1700 meters. The mountain is surrounded by dense forest. In the west, the Letter drops abruptly downward. Not far from its foot is the canyon of the Tsika River. Near the Letter there is a higher mountain that has no official name.

Mount Fisht

In Adygea, in the Maykop region, on the border with the Kuban, there is another hill popular with tourists - Mount Fisht. Its height is 2868 meters.

If you translate the name into Russian, you get "White Head". Looking at the mountain, it becomes clear why it was called that - most of it is covered in snow.

Each traveler can choose a suitable ascent path for himself in accordance with his skills - from an easy road along the Great Glacier to a difficult climb through the eastern part of Fishta.

An interesting fact - a huge number of tourist groups visit the Fisht-Oshtenovsky pass, where a monument to the NKVD border guards who died in the 42nd year of the XX century in the battle with the Nazis is erected. The pass was considered an important strategic point as it provided a good view of the road. The upper point of Fishta is perfectly visible from the pass.

Mount Tybga
