  • We visited two mountain complexes - Mangup and Eski-Kermen. For a long time searched the Internet for any information on these places. It wasn't like that. I'll start with living. We have to book on the spot. In Khoja-Sala in every yard rent rooms, almost every feed. Prices from a thousand a night to mayhem. There are inexpensive and beautiful solutions with all the amenities, at about 2500 per room. We have to walk down one single street to the end and see everything.

We didn't like the food at the cafe closest to the lake. About the mountains.....

Put on comfortable shoes (I saw poor fellows who climbed in slates), it's still rugged terrain (somewhere and climb on the rocks should, and through the trees ...

  • Beautiful, wild place
  • The place is mesmerizing, with beautiful views from the peaks of Mangup. It is better to make the ascent on foot than on a jeep, more will see and the owners themselves their time. After the ascent, you can swim in the lake and taste Tatar cuisine.
