Mesmerizing landscapes of snow-covered peaks of the Caucasus Mountains will stay in one's memory for a long time. We have plans to visit several viewing points, to drive through the most picturesque nooks and serpentines, to climb to the top of the mountain and then to descend into a cave. An unforgettable adventure lies ahead, but it's worth being prepared for it - you should dress warmly and take hot tea with you on the way. The trip can be extended for a couple of days, staying overnight at the ski resort. The route is developed with the support of [Volkswagen Amarok](https://www.volkswagen-commercial.ru/ru/model-overview/amarok.html?utm_source=Amarok&utm_medium=cpm&utm_content=Amarok&utm_campaign=LCV_Road_Travel&tc=oa-LCV_Road_Travel-Amarok-cpm-Keyword_Amarok-banner).
A fascinating day in Adygea awaits you, starting with a visit to an ancient settlement in the canyon of the Mishoko river. Then you'll dive into the world of stalactites and stalagmites and ascend to the viewing platforms along the ridges of the Caucasus Mountains. And towards the evening you will have a wonderful opportunity to enjoy the sunset while skiing. Let's go!
The Hadjokh gorge is one of the most famous and beautiful places in this region. This is where we will begin today's journey. Unforgettable views of rocks cut by the stormy flow of the White River await us. In winter the water freezes in places, forming giant icicles that resemble millennia-old stalactites and stalagmites.
Another natural wonder nearby is Mishoko Canyon, whose rocks are up to 70 meters high. The gorge is beautiful at any time of year. Hike deep into the gorge along an eco-trail to frozen waterfalls.
On the way we will make a short stop to breathe fresh mountain air and capture the incredible scenery of the incredible valleys of Adygea.
Well, we're moving on, and now we have to go down to the famous Azish cave. Inside the cave is equipped with special bridges for walking, also the cave is specially illuminated, so you can get very beautiful pictures here.
It is not worth passing by one of the beautiful places in the region, the Lago Naki Valley. The beauty of the Lago Naki Plateau can be compared to the Alpine meadows - snow caps on the mountains, incredible expanses, clouds flying so close that it seems as if they are within easy reach.
The restaurant "Mashallah", also known as "Panorama", offers its visitors the opportunity to enjoy lunch indoors with a view of the mountains. The wonderful atmosphere is complemented by a very varied menu in a European style.
The evening of your little trip can be spent in one of the largest local ski resorts - Azish-Tau. Tourists can enjoy the beautiful scenery of the Azish Pass here. The complex also has its own slope and lift, parking and a number of other facilities. You can learn more about everything on [official site](https://azish-tau.com/). Here you can book a room to stay overnight and continue skiing the next day, and then leisurely return to Krasnodar.
If you decide to head home the same day, you can take a break halfway through the day in Belorechensk and have dinner at a pizzeria in the city center.
