The railway station remains in the use of the locals, so to say. It is in the neighboring town of Sukhodolsk, a satellite town of Krasnodon.There are buses to Krasnodon...

Krasnodon Tourist Traps

    by hunterV Updated Apr 5, 2009

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Looking at the old coalmine waste heaps that we call TEPIKOH (Terra cone, that is, earth cone) some people might feel like mountaineering, but, alas, it is not recommended.
    It is a health hazard.
    You never know where the hidden pits are and who knows what awaits you at the bottom of the pit. It might take you right to the coalmine bottom that can be half a mile deep.... It's worse than quicksand...
    So why take a risk?
    You can merely enjoy the sight and have a picture of yourself taken at its background, but please do not try any mountaineering, OK?
    The locals never walk up any coalmine waste heap.
    They say there is enough danger in everyday life without it.

    Unique Suggestions: Approach a waste heap somewhere on the outskirts and walk around it.

    Fun Alternatives: walk up the hill at The Unsubdued memorial complex.
    It is quite safe.
    Enjoy the view!
