  • Arrived at Arkhyz spontaneously, friends invited. for 4 days. Beauty is unusual. The Church at the foot of the mountain was closed, new repairs. Went up to the stairs, it's hard to breath, quite high. But when you are climbing on the rock and you realize that this is the work of artist 9 century, captures the spirit of how all have bathrobes provided around ... And the first ladder as it was wooden, which, at its own expense, built some Nikolai, a local Kazak, large father himself with children brought to the car stuff and put the wooden staircase with rope handrail. Prior to this, the pilgrims made their way through the bushes and pushed down half way in the rain at all unrealistic was climb. Nikolay nobody calls her name, said that he (looks up) so everyone knows about it. Many of you, Nicholas and your family. Now built iron stairway to compelling donations. According to legend, the face of Christ painted Hermit Monk in a cave where he lived in 9 century. When kamnepade the cave collapsed and was people with rocks. You can see it only from the bottom, near he merges with a rock, he and a half meter in height and one meter in width. It is believed that this is the first icon. It is very nice that the donations to restore historical sites. At the bottom of the market and Cafe, they have their kavkazkij colouring))) Skewers on the street, hurly-burly)) delicious and satisfying. Mountain tea is not forgotten. I'm happy that I was able to see this miracle of the Caucasus))) Come, if possible, else))

  • We visited this place on the way to Arkhyz. Much about it told, but not impressed. As the mound located nearby. Places unique indeed, but they filed as something not right. Totally uncared territory. As lead 526 stages, there are places for respite. That's when you will overcome these stages before Christ can not you Lika and will follow too. The passage is obstructed to him, up to 10 meters more Lika, and maybe a little more, with lick covered glass, so see that either will be extremely difficult. Nearby there is a souvenir market, several cafes with a pretty tasty food and a complete lack of sanitation, "Caucasian" as called it the Guide. Near the river protekaete is very beautiful, but hidden from the eye here is the cafe. As well as around straight unpleasant feeling of devastation. So the place is beautiful, but not worth a special trip.
