  • Conquered the Ayu-Dag, along with his squad of Artek. Got up at 3:00 am and went to meet a mountain dawn. This is truly a fascinating place! As our walk, gradually it grew light, sky perelivalos' different colors. It definitely was the best sunrise in my life. The height of the mountains-571 meter to conquer the top of the foot it took us about two hours. The road narrow enough, but very beautiful vegetation and a wonderful air! Vistas you provided! There is a legend that the stone, which you'll take at the foot of the mountain, and then donesete to the top, can fulfill your wish) and some tips: be sure to take a hat and more water)

  • The idea came up to get on the Ayu-Dag while strolling in 2004 year on an Arteku. That's because walked and went up. Without trails, clinging to the branches, stones and snakes. Burned quickly in the Sun, but the view from the heights-Super! Up to climb easier, here is the down-almost flew head over heels ... But how much happiness!

  • Very interesting and nice to swim on a boat around the mountain: beautiful grottoes, scenic rocks, turquoise water.
