"My last trip" Kabardino-Balkarskaya Respublika by JuliaMac

Kabardino-Balkariya is situated on the northern slopes of the central part of the Main Caucasian Ridge and the adjacent plains. The Republic is not very large, squaring 12,500 sq.km. only. But the Nature hasn't been sparing with her gifts to Kabardino-Balkariya. The Republic's mineral wealth, flora and fauna are very rich. All the five-thousand-metre peaks, except for Kazbek, the largest glaciers and troubled rivers are in the territory of this Republic. Mountain forests and Alpine meadows are splendid. Unique Blue Lakes, the famous Bezengi Wall, representing 13 kilometres of ice, snow and rocks of over 4,000 metres height, the Chegem Waterfalls with their rolling streams, five most picturesque gorges in Prielbrusye (The Elbrus Region), the internationally-recognized centre of mountaineering, mountain-hiking, summer and winter tourism - all this strikes anyone's eye and stamps on the memory of those, who has ever been there.

I am at Ceget ...behind of me Elbrus

Twin- headed Mountain Elbrus, the highest and most beautiful peak of Caucasus, of which songs and legends have been composed, and also glorified by Pushkin and Lermontov is situated there, too.
