better developed infrastructure is needed. The mountain has an incredible view and nice walks. There is a great rope-bridge "attraction" across a canyon of around 1300 meters deep. There also are nice caves and just beautiful forests. There are amazing restaurants on the mountain with amazing homemade food. However, to get there you have to have your own car or... More

The only downside is long(sometimes, depending on your luck) line to get boarded on the Cableway. Try to arrive as early as possible. On top of the mountain you will find nice restaurants, with design and menu that supports local spirit. Views are AMAZING! Absolutely a must!

Really expected more! Didn't see some breathtaking view, was a long drive and honestly nothing special. Wouldn't visit it again.

We took the car up the mountain, which cost 300 rubles per person (there are many drivers offer to drive you up), and we took the cabin on the way back to the ground. On the the way to the top, our driver stopped on the way several times for us to take pictures. Driver drop us off at the... More

Although the Ukraine is still trying to find its own identity, and move on from the Russian influence. The Tar Tars are interesting people, and overall besides the overcast clouds filled with rain it actually was quite enjoyable =D With a fantastic view of the Black Sea below. Get a load of the guy with gold teeth, saying $100 US,... More

I took my son to Ai Petri mountain last year. Sometimes it is not possible to see anything from the mountain because of the thick clouds. Also we were advised to bring warm clothes with us which we didn’t need as it was warm and not windy at all. We took a cable car from Miskhor (300 rubles) to go... More

The top of this mountain is teaming with things to do, there are many pay for play attractions but also many places to hike and view the vistas of the Black Sea, one of my favorite places to go, be sure and try the tar tar restaurants, they have excellent food of their culture.

Once you reach the top, the views are spectacular looking down towards the Black Sea. At the top are some shops and a little... More
