Through the ridge Aisha to the lost mountain lake – 2 days / 1 night

Ridge Aisha is located close to Krasnaya Polyana between arrays Pseashkha and Kardyvach mountain site. This ridge is the watershed between the rivers Malaya Laba, which flows to the North, and Mzymta, flowing to the South. On one of the spurs of the ridge Aisha, overlooking Engelmanova Polyana, comfortable cottages are located there for the guests of the Caucasian reserve. While staying in this beautiful Chalet with all the amenities you can enjoy views of the surrounding mountains, swim in mountain river, take a steam bath, as well as Hiking on the ridge Aisha and see the Alpine meadows and mountain lake Klumbochka.

Lake Klumbochka is located three kilometers South-East of the mountain Aishkha on the height of 2559 m. Not the biggest area (10 square km), but it does not leave any tourist indifferent. It has everything: a special comfort of a small mountain circus with flowing plumes of snow, a gently sloping grassy shore, alternating with rocks smoothed by the glacier, mirror picturesque peaks (peak Tornau) in water and a special highlight — an island in the Western part of the lake overgrown with rhododendrons. It was who gave the lake such a fun name — “Klumbochka”, as it is really similar to the creation of landscape design. A view of the massif Agepsta sparkling on the sun glaciers opens from the homonymous pass Klumbochka.

The best time to visit lake Klumbochka is from July to October, when the lake becomes completely free from ice and snow. In July, the island is covered with beautiful rhododendrons, and in August the lake is well warmed by the sun which allows us to swim there.

The trekking route along the ridge Aishkha lasts two days and involves an overnight stay in cottages located on Engelmanova field. Walking part of the route presents no technical difficulties and is available to any traveler.
