Moderate difficulty level. We recommend this tour for experienced hikers.

Might be tough for beginners, but if you're physically fit and exercise regularly this tour could be an excellent first experience of hiking.

Weather conditions: it's quite hot and sunny in the summer, though it's windy in the mountains and gets really cold at nights. Please look at our gear list and take all the required clothing.

Permits. This route passes through nature reserve and border zone, so arranging permits is necessary: at 30 days in advance for citizens of the Russian Federation, at 60 days in advance for foreign citizens (we will do that for you). Plan your vacation ahead of time!
