    This is the place we opened last year (2016). Thanks to the sponsors that had built such a ladder on a very large height. I once did not spot the problem with joints at all so mom cane, her 70 years. But now, interestingly, some invisible force pushes only before. And we walked seemed nonstop. Width is not large, but nevertheless with people not stalkivaeshsja. Nearly approach as there are benches where you can take a break before the height about faces, small area. And the air here wonderful, mountain, and what kinds of. The invisible force showed all the charm of nature. The face of Christ, here is not accidental. Very important place, we are pleased that visited it.

    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))
