  • Mount Taraktash is located a few kilometres from the pike perch near the village of Cottage (former Taraktash), and a short bus ride. The mountain resembles a cockscomb, resemblance to that noted academician Pallas (not coincidentally the name: in translation-"Stone Ridge"). Taraktash many legends associated with the name of the national hero "robber" Alima, grabivshego of the rich and help the poor. The legend says that he often hid here among local residents. In the history of the famous Taraktashskij hoard discovered in 1908, g. a. x. Steven near the present Cottage. Find this (about two thousand pozdnebosporskih and Roman coins) testifies to the close links the ancient Pike Bosporan Kingdom. On the other side of the highway is fancy rock, resembling from afar on frog-Bakatash ("the tank"-frog, "tash"-stone). In the middle ages, the narrow stretch of Valley between the mountains Taraktash and Bakatash was protected by a defensive wall. The remains of the wall at the end of the last century were still visible on the slopes of these mountains. With some imagination in whimsical shapes of the rocks you can see the fortress walls and towers, shapes people and fantastic creatures. With these stone statues associated local legends. Taraktashskie rocks suitable for climbing. Hence, a great view of the Valley, the sea, the surrounding mountains. Little mountain hozhenaja, trails are virtually non-existent, it is better to start recovery from the pike perch-Feodosia, comfortable footwear is required.
