MOUNT AKHUN

Bolshoy Akhun mountain is one of the most famous and popular sights of Sochi. It is located in Khostinsky district of the city (about 20 km from the center of Sochi). The highest point of Bolshoy (Big) Akhun is 663 m above sea level.

Maliy (Small) Akhun mountain and Eagle rocks also attract notice. The small ridge stretches for 5 kilometers along the sea between the valleys of the rivers Khosta and Matsesta. There are many excursion trails along the ridge. A clear and fascinating view for many kilometers around opens from the slopes of the mountain, covered with a protected grove of yew and boxwood.

On Bolshoy Akhun mountain there is an observation tower, built in 1935-36 by architect S. I. Vorobyov. The height of the tower is 30.5 m.

There are more than 20 caves in the depths of the Akhun karst massif. The most famous cave is located next to the trail connecting the top of the mountain and Agur waterfalls.
