Feedback from participants

Overall, I liked everything very much. At almost 40 years old, possessing an average level of physical training, I easily overcame all the tests of the route, it is really quite easy, as stated on.

I'm 43, average physical training (summer cottage, winter skiing in the presence of snow). The hike was generally not difficult, I would rather call it walks. The main difficulty was presented by the tracks with crumbling.

Independent and individual tourism; what is important to know about it

Rocky peaks and clean lakes, rapids and shady deciduous forests, ancient mosques, monasteries, and many more places that are not even mapped - so let's open them! And the end of the route will be a date with the sea.

Independent and individual tourism is a very interesting direction for those who intend to completely escape from the gray everyday life and spend time with benefit

In Crimea, there are many bays and beaches that are far from settlements and in which it is customary for "savages" to rest.

Our route will run along the Black Sea coast and we will mainly organize overnight stays in the bays. On the way we will see many interesting places, and, of course, we will swim in the sea every day!

Features of the route: shops will meet almost every day, so there is no need to carry a heavy layout for the entire trip. We'll buy food along the way. Some bays do not have fresh water, so you need to carry a day's supply with you.

Daily program

Day

We meet at the station of the city of Feodosia and go to the first bay on our way - Dvuyakornaya.

The path is not the easiest one. We'll have to go up the hill, but we will be rewarded with a beautiful view. On the way, we will pass the radar protection station.

Warm sea and the first night on the beach await us in the bay. The evening is spent for acquaintance and relaxation from the road.

Day

It's magical in the morning to get out of the tent and immediately plunge into the sea! But this is exactly what we will do today!

Exercise, breakfast - and set off. On this day we will pass through the village of Ordzhonikidze, then through five promontories in the sea, two of which are along the "trodden" path knee-deep into the sea! Perhaps it will be covered with a wave, so we pack all things well. It is completely safe and very interesting! Beautiful photos can be taken at the edge of the cape. Behind the last, fifth cape, the Quiet Bay opens to us. It is really quiet in it. White sand and calm sea. We pass another couple of kilometers and become a camp.

Overnight in tents on the shore in the same bay.

The route runs along the main ridge of the Crimean mountains. We will go to the sea near the village of Rybachye, from where you can go to Sudak, Alushta or other places on the coast. Climbing, visiting caves and waterfalls await us. A rich educational route, which is especially good in May!

Feedback from participants

This hike can be recommended for both beginners and more experienced hikers. And if you are a vegetarian and go on a hike with Mikha, then you can be calm - there won't be enough cheese))

I liked it! My second trip to Crimea! Magnificent views, a varied route, excursions to museums, and most importantly a cave !! On the first day, we arrived at a hospitable tour base, where you can wash and get to know each other.

For the first hike, given a little regular physical activity, this route was not easy. It was especially hard in the early days, but over time you catch the pace of your camping life.

Abandoned cave cities and monasteries growing straight from the rocks, shady forest paths and dizzying mountain peaks, relict lakes and magnificent waterfalls - all this we have to explore on the route "Ancient secrets of mountain Crimea". Amazing landscapes of one of the most picturesque corners of the earth and unique architectural monuments of the Middle Ages await us - a real adventure for all lovers of nature and history.

A nice feature of this hike is that we don't have to carry heavy backpacks: they will go separately in an auto-escort car and will meet us at the parking lots, while we will cover the whole way lightly! So you can safely take teenage children on a trip.

We will have daily treks of 15-20 kilometers in mountainous terrain (which is 6-8 hours of pure running time) and elevation changes of up to 900 meters. Together we will be able to correctly distribute forces, but for now we are looking for comfortable trekking shoes and take a raincoat with us: the weather in the mountains is unpredictable.

Daily program

Day

Bakhchisarai - Khan's Palace - Holy Dormition Monastery - Cave City Chufut-kale - Kachi-kalon - Bashtanovka village. Distance 17 km, vertical climb 350 m.

Our adventure begins in Bakhchisarai: at 9 am we will meet at the entrance to the Khan's palace, get to know each other and go on a tour of the medieval residence of the Crimean khans, where ascetic oriental decoration is combined with exquisite luxury. We will see the Great Khan Mosque, decorated with fancy majolica, a gazebo in which stained glass reflections play with the glare of flowing water, and of course, the famous Fountain of Tears, sung by A. Pushkin.

Having said goodbye to the Tatar palace, we will walk through the Old Town to another amazing architectural monument: the Holy Dormition Orthodox Monastery, whose white-stone buildings rise directly from the sheer cliffs, more than one and a half hundred meters high. At first, it may seem that massive rocks are about to crush a small monastery huddled in their crevices, but upon closer inspection, another illusion is created: as if a row of small snow-white buildings are holding this giant stone wall.

Then we will visit the cave city of Chufut-Kale with mysterious ancient halls, passages and stairs carved into the stones. From here, from a height, a magnificent view of the Crimean mountains and surrounding settlements opens.

Having saturated with impressions, we descend into the valley, where our first overnight stay will take place on the shore of a picturesque lake or in a clearing on the territory of a camp site (depending on the weather and season) on the outskirts of the village of Bashtanovka. Here we will set up a camp, play games, sing to the accompaniment of a guitar, take a dip in the moonlight if we like, and get some rest before our new adventures.
