The Main ridge of Crimean mountains is divided by valleys into a number of the separate files, which surface almost flat, is weak vsholmlennaja more precisely. Strong winds do not allow to grow normally to trees, but a moisture and sun abundance are favorable for mountain meadows. Ah-Petrinsky jajla - one of the most spacious and beautiful, and the most mastered in tourism.
Ah-petri (Sacred Peter, grech.) - the mountain which has become by one of standard and all of favourite symbols of Crimea. Its height of 1234 metres, it is far not the greatest, but the mountain silhouette finishes the most beautiful line of an amphitheatre from the sea - from cape Ah-todor with the Swallow's nest - to the well-known white teeth.
the Teeth Ah-petri forms four large (height 12-15 and a number of the small steep peaks formed at aeration non-uniform rifovyh of limestones. On closer examination it is possible to learn tubules of corals. It is difficult to realise really that power which has lifted a coral reef on such height!
On Ah-petri a lot of interesting and unusual - local landscapes sometimes you learn in sci-fi movies. the Ah-Petrinsky meridian - the globe on the granite basis with the exact geodetic data, a specific platform on to a rock of Shishko , a meteorological station, mountain Bedene-Kyr , a cave the Three-eye , equipped for excursions - a traditional set with which you can and expand. In total 35 caves are investigated, and total number of karstic cavities exceeds 230.
To the Teeth pendant the rope-way , become operational in 1987 Ah-petri conducts. Its length - 3 km, lifting time - 20 minutes.
Near the Teeth grows reserved the Beechen grove , the biggest on Crimean jajle a site old bukovo-grabovogo woods. Powerful, to 10-15 metres of height and to semimeter in diameter of a trunk, trees create a picture, rare for almost bezlesnyh mountain plateaus. At most brovki jajly were sheltered loholistnaja a pear and ёюёэр-"Ррьюых=". Age of last (about 300 years) and original flagoobraznaja the crone form have made its unique nature sanctuary. Exclusive interest is represented some by very old copies a yew berry , growing on an edge to the northeast from a teeth Ah-petri. Age of oldest of these giants - more than thousand years.
The Mountain road conducting through a plateau Ah-petri from Bakhchisarai through Falcon to Yalta is present test for drivers of jeeps and ecstasy power and "яЁшЁѕёхээюё=і¦" all-wheel drive чтхЁ ". On a mountain streamer such car is obediently pressed by wide tyres in the most abrupt bends and allows not to dump speed on lifting.
Well, and as soon as you have appeared above... It is already simple the whole celestial country, something from serial planets "Гтхчфэ№х тющэ№": almost untouched a civilisation, with roads (asphalt and soil), winding between the hills, opening in a mad rhythm of rally all new and new fantastic landscapes. The rocks changing colour every minute; flagoobraznye pines; clouds carried by at reckless speed and the sea which far below also looks the fallen asleep glass.
If a jeep to replace with a mountain bicycle - the rhythm will be more modest, but aroma of blossoming meadows (from medicinal, basically, grasses) and sounds of a life, very dense and independent of people, will give to you full ulet from a civilisation. On Ah-petri see sometimes the present mustangs, free posterity of the run wild horses of times of the Great Patriotic War.
On a slope of mountains at the highway conducting from Yalta on Ah-petri, it is possible to see interesting natural sight - century wood from a pine Crimean, broken by a landslip. It is unique "¤і эр " a pine grove where trees-giants in the chaotic disorder have inclined every which way the trunks.
