Travel Itinerary and Road Trip Route

Day 1: Karting and Guam Gorge

Today you have a long road and interesting stops waiting for you. The first half of the day will be spent driving your car first, and afterwards in the cars of the carting center. In the afternoon, you'll find a fascinating hike and winter hiking in Guam Gorge and lots of beautiful photos. And, of course, don't forget to relax in the thermal springs after a busy day.



Stop for a light breakfast in the doughnut shop, which is open daily from 8am. Keep up with the adventure!

Картинг "Пилот"

Start your day with real racing! The length of racing tracks is 1257 meters. Carting works daily from 9 to 18. You can find out the price as well as sign up by contacting the [site](

Café Big Bear

So you made it to the mountains. Have a bite to eat in a simple café and go on to meet the adventure.

Guam Gorge

The gorge is about five km long and 400 m deep. There is also a narrow-gauge railway from Mezmay to Guamka, which was built in 1928-1932 mainly by prisoners and used for forest removal. Until 2020, there was a tourist train running every 40 minutes. However, its activities have been suspended for an indefinite period. Leave the car at this point and continue on foot only.

Памятник Природы Гуамское ущелье

The length of the route is about 12 km in both directions. For a moderate walk you should lay down about 3-4 hours. Head along the railway tracks - they will show you the way and will not let you get lost.

Monakhova Peshchera

On the way to winter, you'll find a lot of iced icicles, so stay alert. The cave is visited quite rarely as it is a bit off the main route, but the scale of the cave is impressive for anyone. A good reference point for finding the cave is the stream that flows out of its entrance. You can find the cave by walking through the gorge and turn left a bit using a map. You can turn left at the cafe 1707. You will have to cross the wading or frozen creek, so dress up in the weather. You can wade just upstream of the crossing, which is open in the summertime. When you get to the other side, you will have to climb a 200m and 460m path up the badly visible path. This point is optional, if you don't feel strong enough, you can walk all 4 hours in the gorge itself without leaving the road.

Aquarius Thermal Springs

After a fascinating hike, it's time to relax in the thermal springs. One of the largest thermal complexes of the Krasnodar region - recreation center "Aquarius" has 11 swimming pools, of which 5 are publicly available, and 6 are leased out together with cottages. You should inform about your visit by phone: +7(918)950-95-29. Children under 6 years old (accompanied by parents) are free of charge.

Restaurant "1882"

Day 2: Mountain scenery and the Azish cave

Start your day with the ruins of an old famous factory, and then visit the miracle of nature - the Hajjokh gorge. Then head to Rufabgo's frozen waterfalls for colourful photographs. A few beautiful viewing platforms and views of the Lago Nak Highlands and the Azish-Tau Range await you afterwards. And don't forget that Adygeya is famous for its dolmens, whose purpose is still unknown. You will have to unravel their mystery.
