Route through the mountains to the sea

So, in the summer of 2010 we went hiking in the Crimea (by reference A detailed account of the campaign), in the so-called “through the mountains to the sea.” Although maybe its official name is different, we christened it just so because it reflects its essence.

The only mistake is that we were out there in one place, and spent the night on the river Sialtan, although it was necessary to go further. The paths there were clearly not traced, but it is our fault that Wanted to cut. It’s better not to do this without GPS.

Path length: About 60 km, day crossings – like your heart’s content We passed it slowly in 7 days, you can go for 4-5.

Thread route: Tank – Mangup (spring) – t / s Istoki (spring) – per. Becchu – t / s Ai-Dimitriya (spring) – t / s Tea house – t / s Silver streams (spring) – t / s Grand Canyon (small river) – m / s B (small river) – m / s Bash-Dere (river) – Ay-petri – on shuttle bus to Yalta.

The route through Tyrke Yaylo and Karabi Yayloi

In the summer of 2012, we just went camping in the mountains of Crimea. AT This time he ran along the Black Sea coast and we periodically have seen the sea in the open. As a result, we still, of course, went to the sea, so you can call it the same way – through the mountains to the sea. And we literally reached the sea on foot and without transport. But the last 5 km is just a gentle dirt road, which is not of particular interest, well, except that there are grape plantations everywhere.

This route is also good because it is minimal. probability of meeting with foresters, since these places are not very are popular.

Thread route: with. Perevalnoe (Kurlyuk River Su) – m / s Kurlyuk Bash – m / s East Suat – m / s Ai Alexiy – m / s Chigenitra – Fishing.

Path length: About 35 km, daytime crossings desire, but it is easier to focus on the parking lot (t / s), because there is springs. Although they meet a couple of times by themselves. We passed for 5 days with a radial exit, but it is realistic to pass in 2-3 days.

What should be considered when going hiking in Crimea

Much more points, but this is something that is our personal by experience. To get started, read how to get to the Crimean Peninsula, described all the ways.

  • Officially, before hiking in the Crimea register with KCC (Rescue Control Service), by giving them a thread of the route and paying for all the nights, as well transitions between them, if required. On what kind of parking and Transitions are paid, you can find on the site of laziness. By fact – it is not necessary to register, and pay too.
  • Also, before the trip it makes sense to find out what the situation is with fire hazard in the region. First, you will not be registered if you will want to do this, and secondly, in areas marked with red You can run into the foresters and get a fine. Yes, and clean with human point of view it is better to refrain from visiting the Crimean forest at this time.
  • Consider that a large number of “Ostapov” divorced in the Crimea Bender “who may try to dissolve you for money. Therefore, the link above, read exactly where and for what you should pay.
  • To reduce the risk of hitting money, it’s best to go places of possible payment either early in the morning or in the evening. From places overnight stays are also better off early in the morning, in order to avoid unnecessary questions. For example, it is not allowed to spend the night in Mangup Kala, therefore it is better not to intersect with those who carry on UAZ there tourists.
  • Officially, overnight stays can only be carried out on tourist. parking (there is a list), in fact – almost everywhere. And if anyone asks, say that slept on m / s such and such. If required money, you can pay one day, saying that he is the last. But on the territory of the reserve outside the tourist sites is better not spend the night.
  • Tourist parking (t / s) are trampled glades with fireplaces. This I mean that there is usually no shops, lodging and other services. The exception is parking next to the pistes, or next to the houses of foresters, where something there is food. Often at the sites there is a spring.
  • Do not try to make a fire in the reserve outside tourist sites, not only because of the large fine, but also because frequent fires in the Crimea. The best option is to use gas. burner. And in a fire-dangerous season, it’s better without a fire at all. costs.
  • The river in the Crimea a little and often they dry up. Besides hiking trails rarely go along them and therefore have an adequate supply of water until the next spring. And plan your trekking route so that it ends at tourist parking where there is a spring.
  • To go hiking is enough to have a map. terrain on a scale of 1 cm – 500 m with applied tourist routes of the Crimea and the compass. If possible, then you can GPS grab. It should be noted that the map of Crimea is made on the basis of a military map of 30 years old, therefore some groundwater roads may no longer exist, so it’s best to lay your route along the hiking trails that are highlighted in color on map, and not on dirt roads.
  • If you forgot something for a hike (a list of things to hike), then there is a good tourist shop Vertical (14/2 Lenin Blvd.) near the railway station in Simferopol. There and mountain atlas in Crimea you can buy gas bottles and, in principle, any equipment. Go literally 5 minutes.
  • Regular buses in the Crimea are quite budget, and go often enough, so the main areas can to enjoy. And in those areas where trolley buses go (Yalta-Simferopol, Alushta-Simferopol), it is better to ride them, they are often air conditioned and still cheaper than buses.

P.S. Good hikes to the mountains on any routes of the Crimea! AND, Please take the trash away whenever possible!
