  • Unfortunately not all tracks and paths on Beshtau, because beware, the mountain has many wild-dead-end tracks. (some podsilu only experienced people). Carefully ask local passers-by. We recommend to start the ascent from the friary (Pyatigorsk) or at the foot of Mount Zheleznovodsk. This is less safe routes

  • This year's mass Ascension fell on 6 May. Ascent difficult, but everyone will be able to, the important thing is not to give up! Because rose more than 7 thousand people, it was very exciting. Students of Zheleznovodsk and Pyatigorsk and other nearby neighborhoods perfectly performed military songs. All rising encouraged and helped each other. The first point is the Plateau from which radiate the Summit of Mount Beshtau. Already here kind of beautiful. The higher, the better! Will be remembered for a long time! The descent is a little easier, but it should be neat, on its feet. And below all waited for frontovaya grechka with meat and tea with herbs from the Cossack Regiment! Tea is divine! A great idea at the ritzy Beshtau!

Searched for the first landmark, it's a rock thumb, but as it turned out later by description, which we have found to this mount fit a few rocks. And here we have found something similar on your thumb, and climbed to the top of it, and the most remarkable was that on this rock commemorative plaque was about a guy who recently fell from there. Started to overcome falling rocks, where all the stones lay rather hlipko and one wrong move obrushivalo regular stone down, good that they decided to climb wide chain and so that one person does not have another. Finally after 40 minutes we overcame this plot and satisfied saw the first landscapes of Pyatigorsk and neighboring mount Mashuk. But I had the impression that something goes wrong and found us earlier description of the ascent did not begin so difficult. And of course, after overcoming the next Ridge we finally see ...
