    Markotkh Range

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Updated Nov 21, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Markotkh is a low 90 km-long mountain range in the extreme northwest of the Greater Caucasus. It is located parallel to the Black Sea coastline and encircles the Tsemes Bay and the Gelendzhik Bay.
    Its Markotkh name translates from the Adyghe language as "blueberry".

    We climbed up the Mount Ploskaya in August of 1988 to enjoy the wonderful view at the Gelendzhik Bay. He was only 11 years old but he could easily climb the mountain with me though it was difficult for my younger son Andrey (9 years old) and he stayed on the half of the climb with Irina waiting for us when we come back. It took us 2 hours to complete climbing from the beach of the bay (0 meter level) to the top of the mountain which has an elevation of 762 metres.

    Western Caucasus

    by Kuznetsov_Sergey Updated Nov 20, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The Western Caucasus is a western region of the Caucasus in Southern Russia, extending from the Black Sea to Mount Elbrus.
    Irina visited that area in 1974 when she made a hike over the Western Caucasus from Maykop to Dagomys. We also visited Krasnaya Polyana in 1977 which is a part of the Caucasian State Nature Biosphere Reserve.
    You can see the views over the Western Caucasus from Mount Akhun taken in 2000.

    Sochi, the Saint Tropez of Russia.

    by Pavlik_NL Written Feb 25, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Sochi, the bathingresort on the Black sea. Here many Sovjet and Russian political leaders had and have their summerhouses. The palmboulevard is almost un-Russian and a lust for the eye. Sochi is beautifully situated between the high mountains of the Kaukasus and the sea itself. Sochi has many good and friendly hotels (finally!) that make a stay comfortable. The botanical gardens are filled with plants that proove the subtropical climat that this region of Russia has. Snow is hardly seen here and swimming in the busy Newyears-eve (the biggest party in Russia) is not that special.

    A drive of less then a hundred kilometres into the mountains brings you to the number one ski-resort of Russia: Krasna Pollana. Here facilities are good and many ski-pistes are waiting for the wintersporters.

    For more quiet spots along the Black Sea coast, you can enjoy a stay in Tuapse or Gelinchik or many small villages. The further North you go, the lower the mountains in the backland and the more wineyards in between the hills. Anapa can be considered the capitol of Kuban-wine.
