Main / Expeditions / Crimea 2009

Crimea 2009

We used to visit the Crimea mountains very often. Usually there were speleological expeditions in the local caves and most often to Karabi-Yaila with the deepest cave – Soldatskaya. Then Crimea became a foreign country and we forgot about this charming region. But by the spring of Y2009 I decided to visit these places again. This time the tasks were different, notably photo geographical. In the past we used to visit Crimea for family trips in May holidays. This time the similar period was selected and the tradition of family trips was partially observed: my son Gleb participated in the expedition. We started our route from the Angarsky mountain pass, walked through the field MAN, climbed on Demerdji-Yaila, and then arrived to Karabi-Yaila through Tirke. From Karabi-Yaila we came down to the settlement Rybach’e. The weather was unexpectedly bad. There was snow and hard wind, when we were climbing down to Rybach’e. The flowers, which are the usual decoration of spring yailas, were late this year. But still Crimea has not become worse. The people are gentle, the prices are reasonable, and nobody prevents travelling in the mountains. And the number of tourists has even increased in comparison with Soviet times.
