Zelenogorje (Arpat)

Zelenogorje or Arpat is a small village away from the Crimean coast. This place isn't widely known among tourists. Nevertheless, it should be included in the mandatory program if you stay, for example, in Sudak.

It is not easy to get there, we chose a taxi. We didn't book a tour, and I think it was the right decision - the taxi was not much more expensive than the tour, but no one bothered us.

In Zelenogorje don't hurry to go directly to the falls - there is a beautiful mountain lake on the right of the entrance to the trail that leads to the falls. You should climb a small hill.

There is a trolley above the lake. As soon as we started climbing the hill we heard a motorbike behind us. A local guy came to offer us a trolley ride. For $1.5 per person we certainly took advantage of this opportunity. If you want to ride the trolley, but no one is there, try to ask in the shop in the center of the village (about 300 meters from the lake).

We also climbed a rock on the other side of the lake, met mountain goats there and looked at the lake from above.

Then we went to the waterfalls. Yoo have to buy a ticket but in May nobody was there. There are many waterfalls in Zelenogorje, get ready to walk a lot to reach the greatest one. First, you'll walk along a forest path, and then you'll have to climb the rocks and cliffs. However, there is a benefit of specially equipped steps and stairs. The main part of the road lies along the river, so you won't get lost. In one of the places the river diverges into two directions. Go to the right, where the surface resembles a washboard.

May is a perfect time to visit Zelenogorye. There are almost no tourists, we encountered only 4-5. Near one of the waterfalls we saw a nude photosession. The suggestion to exchange girls for photos was rejected :) Under the last waterfall we had a mini picnic on a huge boulder.

Getting there: There is no public transport to Zelenogorje. We went to the bus station in Sudak and agreed with a taxi driver for $12. The distance to Zelenogorje is about 30-35 km. Think about the way back ahead, it is better to take a phone number of a taxi driver. We didn't take a phone number, but a local resident drove us back to Sudak for $15. You can also walk from Zelenogorje to the road Alushta - Sudak (7 km) and catch a bus or a car there. Besides, all travel companies in Sudak offer tours to Arpat.
