  • A great feeling! Stand above the clouds, though on top of the world and if the whole world at your feet. Then you can all say that you touched cloud hands.

  • My wife and I were at the beginning of December 2016-a very beautiful place, with a lookout tower offers a great view of the mountains, the sea, Sochi and Adler. You can discern and sports facilities and Marina. View of the snow-capped peaks of the mountains is gorgeous! The tower itself is also quite scenic-recommend for a photo shoot. Be sure to visit! Traveled by taxi from bus stop "Sputnik" (health resort/sanatorium "Satellite) Novorossisk. Calculation of the taximeter-400 rubles, climbing 400 descent. (Yandex, red taxi taxi). The kurortny Avenue taxi does not go down they then go around through the Sochi or Adler, so either take bus from Sochi to satellite, or walk on foot to stop satellite. Walk to the top of the tower to go I do not recommend-way cool and not very picturesque, timber, cars and buses constantly scurrying back and forth. Impression of this mountain is not worth 2.5 hours lifting and nerves!
