The Taraktashskaya Trail

Taraktashska Trail
Operation: year round
Location: Yalta
 
The beautiful Tract of Taraktash, name of which is translated from Turkic as a “rocky crest”, gave the name to the popular hiking trail connecting the Uchan-Su Waterfall with the Ai-Petri Yayla via this tract. The crest has developed from a slope of the Ai-Petri Yayla in the result of a rockslide. The fragile and bizarre rock structure resembles a layer-cake, with unexpected openings and holes, known as windows and showing breathtaking sights of Yalta, the coastal line and the sea. The layer-cake stone beauty of Taraktash is surrounded with age-old Crimean pine trees. The air is filled with thick pine tar aroma. May bells and snowdrops are scattered around the trail in the spring, dark red mountain peonies take their turn by the summer and bright euonymus earrings lighten the place by the fall. This picturesque trail is rough and difficult for ascending in some points. Therefore downhill hikes via Taraktash are more popular.

Hello, hello!

Just a short note to inform you about how I appreciated everything your organization has done. My vacation in Moldova, Ukraine and Belarus has been one of the best I have ever experienced. I have seen a lot of beautiful buildings, interesting museums, green parks, palaces and I have met a lot of nice people.

The hotelrooms you booked for me were very much all right and everything else went well. I much enjoyed travelling by train through the Ukraine and look forward to visit your country again. I took a lot of pictures and some of the people who were negative from the start when they heard what my travel plans were changed their minds completely after having seen those pictures and hearing my stories.

Be sure I will recommend your services to other people who plan to go to Ukraine.

Thanks for a job well done.

greetings,

Ronald, the Netherlands
