  • Perfectly justified this place did reserve visits only in groups with a guide, otherwise it quickly lost its charm and splendor! The stunning beauty of nature, mountain, sea, trees. I fell in love with him, and not enough words to describe it all! It is necessary to their feet to pass on these trails among the pine trees, climb on the rocks, climb high and see the Valley in a honey-gold of the Sun, and then meet the sunset which colours all shades of peach, and come down. Excursions are held 2 times a day at 8 am and at 3:00 pm, entrance through the biological station in the village Kurortnoye, but down can be same or in Koktebel. The rate in 2017, was about 600 r. per adult. Go group and with children, but in my opinion for children up to 10 years this 3.5 hour tour is pretty difficult. Better to wear comfortable shoes like sports sandals or sneakers, clothes with long sleeves, headpiece and take stock of water.

  • Circled by car all this place has hooked more than anything! Views of the city of Feodosiya, Koktebel, where you can see the Salt Lake. Super place for a tea party:)

  • Incredibly beautiful ancient extinct volcano Kara-Dag! Majestic and freakish rocks! The bright blue of the sea. Feel the pulse of the elevation on the sightseeing trail. But like Vladimir Vysotsky sang, "the whole world in the Palm of your hand, you're happy and it." In summer take a supply of water, wear athletic shoes. Headgear is mandatory! Before heading to the Kara-Dag, practice walking several miles a day. This will help maintain good health and good mood!

  • The reserve is located between Otuz and Koktebel valleys. Area of the reserve is 2870 hectares, of which land 2060 hectares and sea water area is 810 hectares. Highest point — mount Svyataya (577 feet). The greatest depth of the Black Sea within the reserve is 30 meters. On site grows about 3000 species of plants, over 4000 species. Vnozhestvo flora and fauna species included in the Red Book. Visit Karadaga possible only as part of tours that start from the station in the village Kurortnoye. The duration of the excursions is 4:00, the length of the trail is 7 miles away. Attempted independent visitation hunters issued heavy fines. In addition there are walking tours and combined Pesce-Ocean. Tour of the ecological path in the peak season is pretty tiring, you need to properly evaluate their strength. With a need to take a supply of water and a hat.

  • An amazing place. Walking tour of Karadagu (4:00, 7 with superfluous kilometres) is mandatory for attending Koktebel and surroundings. A few heavy lifts, but they podsilny to children and pensioners. Stunning views. To Karadag (Biological) can be reached by boat or overland public transport. The tour begins with a visit to the Museum of flora and fauna of Karadag.

  • The beauty of the nature reserve and the zagazšogo volcano Karadag, will not leave you indifferent. Being here, you are obliged to take a walk on a yacht, and sail under the Golden Gate cliff. Interesting fact: not far from the Golden Gate, back in 1961, filmed the movie Man Amphibian.

Guided tours are conducted from the resort, held the ecological path in the only allow with a guide and only on a particular route. Shy away from trails cannot be-step left-right-solid fine:) But the photo nasnimaete, yes the classic health!
