From September 15, guests of the resorts of the Sochi mountain cluster can use a single walking ticket “Three Resorts”. Hiking in the highlands of the Aibga ridge is one of the most spectacular in the Black Sea region, and a single ticket will allow tourists to go up to one resort and go down to another – to choose from: Gazprom Alpika, Rosa Khutor or Krasnaya Polyana Resort.
A single ticket allows tourists to see the beauty of the Caucasus Mountains. The total time of walking at an average pace along the ridge, located at an altitude of 2060-2340 meters above sea level, is no more than 4 hours.
In clear weather, from the Aibga ridge, you can observe the Main Caucasian Range, including nearby massifs Achishkho, Aishkho, Pseashkho. In addition to the unique mountain panoramas, guests who visit the highlands in the off-season will have time to observe the mass autumn migration of birds following through the Caucasus Range to winter in Asia and Africa.
The track along the mountain range consists of two sections. The section from Rosa Peak to the Shelter of the Winds station on the Alpik is suitable for guests of any skill level, including hiking with children. You can overcome it within an hour with almost no climb. The path from the “Shelter of the Winds” on the Alpika to the Krasnaya Polyana Resort is already more difficult, requires good physical fitness and is recommended for visiting accompanied by mountain guides. Tourists will have to climb and descend with a total height difference of more than 200 meters. The passage of this section of the route will take about three hours.
The cost of a walking ticket “Three Resorts” is 2500 rubles. The tariff is available for purchase until October 29, 2022, at the ticket offices of the resorts, the mountain and tourist center of PJSC Gazprom, Krasnaya Polyana Resort and Rosa Khutor.
