    I was very impressed with a trip to the mountains. The main thing is to choose a good conductor. For us, that was assigned at 7.00 and we went not on the tourist trail. Visited 4 mountains, all in all 9:00. Stunning views, fresh air, complete disconnection from daily life. Sevetuju, wear comfortable shoes and take a jacket, very windy. As well as a take all at the picnic and empty bottles, there will be several springs. On the tops of very windy, kinda cool, even in the Sun sgoraesh and don't even notice. We had 6 people company, gave 7000 r.

    Organized hiking in the Crimea with the children themselves risked and called the company "the call of the mountains". Met us in Simferopol and we went ... not alone these cranks were, there were 18 people. Tents, food, pots and everything dragged on itself not heavy, you have to be prepared and especially shoes. Our six letki pishhali but walked, looked at a 4-year-old girl and walked. With the weather just got lucky in the rain didn't hit. Transitions and small and long, one 10 km walked from spring to spring. And what kind of? And the air? And what human beings met? HA! Did you know that when meeting on a mountain trail all greeted each other! Tremendous thanks Len Smirnova and dime-our instructors and guides. guys are just molodci and in love with the mountains. If you are not afraid of difficulties, go into the mountains themselves, drag children are advised to understand and icing all their households.
