  • Visited this peak in June 14 years. Climbed by cable car, although at the bottom of many drivers harassed with the proposal for the serpentine. Decided not to risk it. At the top we were met by a strong cold wind. Here were quite incidentally sweatshirts and caps prepared in advance. Beauty certainly beyond praise. A little spoiled kind of market-Cafe-shashlik House, which are being built at the top of the kollichesve. But recently I heard on tv that all this trouble will result in civilized look. Total climb at any time of day, but only cloudless weather, otherwise will not see anything. Just in case, take warm things.

  • Firstly you should admire the Ai-Petri mountain bottom: from alupki, of the Vorontsovsky Park. You can climb up in two ways: by bus (1:00) or cable (15 minutes). Same price: 350 p. In my opinion, better on the ropeway. Usually ziplining large queue. It is better to come to the opening (9:00), then the people very little. To begin arriving 10:00 tours and people become very much. The dinner queue is growing. Recovery consists of two sections with one change. Second, steep and long-1670 meters and angle near the mountains of 46 degrees. Kind of exciting. The top of the mountain, unfortunately, flawed retail outlets, but from the mountains an unforgettable! You should go to lesochke, where the trail begins small, but steep and rocky climb to the teeth Ah-Petri. Somehow, for a walk along the forest path: take the money 100 r. (retired-free). For a walk on the plateau of 1-2 is usually enough hours. In hot weather the temperature on Mount cooler than at the bottom, so you can enjoy the coolness. If you wish, you can dine there. Back better descend into 12-13 hours, until there were a lot of interested people.

  • If I was asked, what you remembered Crimea?, I would without hesitation replied: the sea and the mountains. And the road-serpentine, from Pikeperch to Alushta, it's something amazing.
