Travel to Karachay-Cherkessia
Hike the Pristine Mountains of the Caucasus
Karachay-Cherkessia is one of the Caucasus’ best-developed tourist regions. It is home to the popular mountain resorts of Dombay, Teberda and Arkhyz. We fell in love with Karachay-Cherkessia because of its pristine valleys and mountains that can be found just a few miles away from the best resorts. Tourist groups rarely hike around Northern Gvandra and Teberda Ridge, and being there, you can easily experience the feeling of being far, far away from civilization.
