Now it’s time to talk about our main campaign. along the coast of the Crimean Black Sea coast through Tyrka and Karabi Yayla The route is simple, but the beauty in it is decent, and most importantly, quite a few people along the way.

Map and route
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 spent 5 days at a given distance, but you can go for 2-3 days.
Budget trip: Minimum 6500r .: 5000r tickets back and forth to the bus, 1000r hiking food and food to the bus, 500r in place on the displacement and fruit. It took me 9000r, since we still 4 days spent on the beach and ate fruit, and also rented a room in Alushta for two nights.

Initially, the campaign was planned in the Carpathians, but as in 2010 everything has changed in the Crimea. It’s not my fate to get to the Carpathians And in this time it also happened that we had two groups united: Andrey and Yana from Kharkov and Denis with Nastya from Moscow. I will not to tire of long stories of inconsistencies and discrepancies in our plans, in order to coincide in a single point in the Crimea. By the way, guys from Ukraine too blog about travels and have already posted their report on our joint campaign.
Moscow – Simferopol
In Crimea, we arrived by bus. I do not advise anyone to least travel agency Neva. The bus was, of course, a Mercedes, but it was still in the course of the Germans went to war. How is he still on wheels holding, I’ll never know. Honestly, I already forgot after travel in Thailand and Turkey, what is business in Russian, when they assure you that the bus is modern, and then you go to the barn and without toilet. Not to mention the unplanned three hour transplant in Tula, hassle due to lack of accompanying (a lot of buses and no one knows which one goes where, even drivers), sanitary stops right in the field and so on.

Hike. The first day.
River Kurlyuk-Su – m / v Kurlyuk-Bash – ist. Suluh-Both
To the entry point that is on the highway Simferopol-Alushta, us threw our new girlfriend on the car. Find the channel Kurlyuk-Su complicated, since there are no designations, and in August completely dry up. There is some kind of substation, you can and to navigate. Here we met our Kharkov friends, and then we had to spend in the company each other for 3 days.
The first day of the journey, we only dream of fatigue

Having reached a couple of hours before the Kurlyuk-Bash parking lot and having made a snack there, we still decided to move on and not without difficulty climbed on Tyrka Yayla The climb was decent and my pampered computer work the body asked for periodic mercy. But it has already become available with heights mountain views, for which everything was started.
We periodically rest during the ascent.

Our friendly team on Tyrka Yayla
Tyrka Yayla is a very pleasant place with yellow meadows and red Rowan berries on the background of pine needles, with the smell of spicy herbs, bath and needles. The wind, however, is sometimes such that on the edge of Table-Mountain (1240 m) I thought it would take us somewhere on Demerdzhi or immediately on sea shore. The first day was the longest in terms of the transition, further there were already small “dashes”.

Second day. Hike.
Source Suluh-Oba – m / s East Suat and the radical on the mountain Kara-Tau
After literally an hour from the spring Suluh-Both, we camped on s / s East Suat. Parking is huge – there are several children camps can accommodate, so peace and quiet. We were standing on its very edge, where the spring turned into a stream. By setting tents, we went to the radial outing. She became a mountain Kara-Tau (1220 m) and Terpi-Koba Cave, located on the upper plateau Karabi. The cave, however, was not immediately able to find, walked in circles a whole hour, I guess. More about our outing with photos I told in the article Mount Kara-Tau and Terpi-Koba Cave.

During dinner, many hours of debate took place, where science mixed and faith in god, biology and vegetarianism, psychology and internal sensations. It’s great that after that everyone was alive and I finally Dorval to shoot the starry sky. But because most often parking are in the forest and the stars are not visible, and then the whole small valley was at my disposal. True, the mountains were not visible—
