The Crimean Mountains is a range of mountains running parallel to the south-east coast of Crimea, between about 8–13 kilometer (5–8 miles) from the sea. Toward the west, the mountains drop steeply to the Black Sea, and to the east, they change slowly into a steppe landscape.The Crimean Mountains consist of three subranges. The highest is the Main range. The Main range is subdivided into several massives, known as yaylas or mountain plateaus (Yayla is Crimean Tatar for "Alpine Meadow"). They are: Baydar Yayla Ay-Petri Yayla Yalta Yayla Nikita Yayla Hurzuf Yayla Babugan Yayla Chatyr-Dag Yayla Dologorukovskaya (Subatkan) Yayla Demirji Yayla Karabi YaylaHighest PeaksThe Crimea's highest peak is the Roman-Kosh on the Babugan Yayla at.

  • 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 lesočke, 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 is usually enough 1-2 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.

  • Journey through the mountains of Crimea is something with something. Describe the view from the tops of the mountains is very difficult to describe. It's got to feel yourself. Around the beauty of ošelamlâûŝaâ, even breathtaking. And what about riding on a car at serpentine, slightly rough roads of Crimea! That's where extreme expanse! I wish you all a successful trip.
