THE FISHT MOUNTAIN

One of the most beautiful and well-known peaks in the Western Caucasus. In clear weather, it is visible from Krasnodar, Slavyansk-on-Kuban, Sochi, Timashevsk, and Armavir. It is most often mentioned in the scientific and local history literature. The 2,868 m mark is the highest point of the Lagonaki Tableland. Fisht is translated from Adyghe as "white head".

The Southern and Western walls of the mountain reach a height of 500-700 meters, part of the Northern slope is covered with the Bolshoy Fishtinsky glacier (1.2 km long), on the Eastern slope there is the Small Fishtinsky glacier, which descends to the level of 1,980 m above sea level. Together with the glacier on the mountain Psheho-Su,the Fisht glaciers comprise the utmost western glaciers in the Caucasus.

In the Northern part of the Western wall of the Fisht mountain there is a depression-the mouth stage of the hanging valley. The waterfall streams down from this stage providing a majestic wall of water 158 m high.

Fisht has many caves with significant depths: Krestik-Turist (650 m), Soaring bird (535 m), Olga (520 m), Anglo-Russian and others.

There are several routes to the top of Fisht from the simple classic (1-B) through the Big Fisht glacier to the most complicated, 5-A category -along the Eastern wall.
