The highest is the Main range. The Main range is subdivided into several masses, known as yaylas or mountain plateaus (Yayla is Crimean Tatar for "Alpine Meadow").

  • Crimean mountains are not high, perhaps, this is the lowest mountains in Europe. But very beautiful, diverse and affordable even for not very trained people, which, however, without a guide is not worth the walk even in the lowest mountain. And we were in the Crimean mountains not once get to the highest (lowest mountains) vertices and each time received a great deal of fun. From the wonderful beauties around, from the beautiful nature and usually from the beautiful weather, and from physical activity too. The highest mountain of the Crimean mountains-Roman-Kosh 1545 m. Samaya krasivaya-Ai-Petri mountain-1234 m the truth some will argue with this and called the most beautiful Chatyrdag (two peaks-the eklizi-breaker 1527 m and hangar-Burun 1453 m. at all these mountains and many other us was lucky enough to visit at different times. And there are mountain peaks and lakes and karst caves and canyons and forests and treeless pastures (Yayla) on platoobraznyh ridges, and a varied fauna. Wonderful, wonderful mountains! A little upset that now access to some interesting places, such as on the territory of the Crimean reserve. What nature must be protected. In General, if you have an opportunity, independently or with a guide, be sure to visit the CRIMEAN MOUNTAINS!

  • 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.
