Backpacking in the mountainous Crimea

The mountainous Crimea is an amazing place, a journey through it is always filled with discoveries! Along the way there are canyons and waterfalls, bizarre rocks and amazing caves and, of course, the warm sea. 

Despite the apparent simplicity, accessibility and proximity of settlements, preparations for this campaign should be taken seriously.
