What will we do on the tour

The meeting takes place at the railway station of the city of Simferopol. After all the rental items and the public load are packed in our backpacks, we will take a trolleybus to the Angarsk Pass. South Crimea begins immediately after this pass!

We start from a height of 752 meters - this is the highest point the trolleybus can reach. Turning into the forest onto a dirt road, we will walk along the old Yalta road, and see a monument to road builders. In about an hour we will be at the site of our parking lot, which is called "Polyana MAN" (Small Academy of Sciences). It was named so because of the MAN cave, which was discovered by children together with their leaders from the Children's Academy of Sciences in Simferopol.

After setting up the camp, we go to the mountain Pakhkal-Kaya (Bald Ivan). On the south side it is a steep slope, from afar resembling the head of the Sphinx, and on the north - a rocky rise leading to the top, to the ruins of an ancient temple. In our time, an Orthodox cross was erected on the site of these ruins, since this place is still revered by pilgrims, because it is a very strong energetic place (a place of Power). And what a magnificent view from the top of the mountain! You can see South Demerdzhi, the village of Luchistoye, the Valley of Ghosts gorge, the sea and Alushta. After meditating and finding our place of Power, we, having gained energy, will go down to the camp, where dinner is already waiting for us.

In the evening, after dinner, sitting by the fire, we will get to know each other a little closer. The instructor will tell the group about the hike and safety on the route, how to properly pack the backpack, put up a tent and move along the route.
