Find the ruins covered in wild greenery and look for its ancient forts, homes, and temples. To visit Ayu-Dag (Medved-Gora) on your trip to Partenit, use our Partenit route tool .

  • Walk to Bear:) the route is suitable even for walks with children. Set height of 300 meters almost immediately, as WAGs trail ascent not very stressful, the main thing is not to run up the Hill. Take stock with a water! The Ayu-Dag is very unusual, because of frequent fogs it all in MOSS. There are several observation on partenit and Yalta, and Cape Monastery (popularly the nose Bears).

  • Visit the mountain better before summer heat, while the sea warms up more than 20 degrees in July and August. On foot you can climb to the top and go down to the "head of the bear", who is lying down drinking sea water. Beaches are welcoming, but large stones. Magnificent views! Recommend!

  • We also sailed a catamaran around bears, a few years ago submerged scuba diving there, very nice, snorkali this year, a lot of fishes, crabs. Wanted to sail more thoroughly for a few hours on the boat and proceeded to storm out, but there is a reason to come back again!
