You will enjoy mesmerizing views of the Sarpa-Kaya rock ledge, popularly called the "Kozyrok" and Mount Kastel, the "sister" of the famous Bear Mountain (Ayu-Daga). I will tell you how they are similar and share other interesting facts
Northern Demerdzhi We went to Demerdzhi-Yayla - the kingdom of herbs! The word "yayla" comes from the common Turkic yay / (d) zhai, meaning "summer". And this is not without reason, because in the old days the plateaus of the Main Ridge of the Crimean Mountains served as summer pastures for livestock. We will ascend to the top of Pakhkal-Kaya, from where, from a height of 1138 meters, we will see the noticeable wooded ridge of Elkh-Kaya, Chatyr-Dag and the Babugan massif.
The starting point of the excursion can be reached by any public transport that follows from Simferopol to Alushta: trolleybus, minibus, bus.
The excursion starts at the Angarsk pass. You will find out the exact meeting point immediately after booking.
