What awaits you
Beech forest We set off on an amazingly beautiful trekking. The picturesque Angarsk pass will take us to the upper plateau of the Chatyr-Dag massif, to the Bukovaya glade, and then we will continue our ascent through the ancient, almost Colchian, beech forest, where you will encounter wooden giants three girths thick
The peak of Eklizi-Burun The most famous hill in Crimea is the Eklizi Burun mountain peak. I will explain why it was nicknamed "Church Cape", I will remember interesting myths and legends of this amazing mountain, and I will also show the main sights of Crimea from a height: in clear weather, from the observation deck of the mountain you can see Simferopol, Alushta, Sudak, Izobilnenskoe reservoir, Demerdzhi mountains, Babugan -yayla and Megan. And from the upper tier, a stunning view of the lower plateau opens
Yew gorge After visiting Elizi-Burun and Angar-Burun, our way goes downhill through the very beautiful Yew gorge. We will go to the eastern spurs of Chatyr-Dag and cross the stream that gives rise to the Angara. Passing springs and beams, a pine forest and a beech grove, we come to the edge of rocky cliffs. The Angarsk Valley, Demerdzhi and Pakhkal Kaya, Zamana and Sakharka, flowing into Angar Burun, will appear before your eyes. After a photo-pause at the observation deck, we will turn into a reserved gorge where berry yews grow - rare plants, aged from 2 to 4 thousand years. In conclusion, we will go down to the Angarsk pass, from where we will go home.
The route will start from the Angarsk Pass, which is easy to reach from both Alushta and Simferopol.
