Brief information on the area
Achishkho (Adyghe Goat Mountain) is a mountain range in the Western Caucasus, located in the Krasnodar Territory of the Russian Federation. Altitude up to 2391 m. The landscapes of the Achishkho ridge are characterized by ancient glacial landforms and ridge lakes (including karst). On the slopes there is a cascading Achipsinsky (in the upper reaches of the Achips river) waterfall. The ridge is located in a zone of humid climate - the annual rainfall is up to 3200 mm, the largest in Russia. The thickness of the stable snow cover reaches 4.8 m. The number of sunny days does not exceed 60–70 days a year.
Achishkho surprisingly harmoniously combines lush alpine and subalpine forbs, emerald green of beech forests, blue lakes covered with duckweed swamp vegetation. In summer, meadows are covered with a carpet of primroses, hyacinths and fancy white snowdrops with long, elaborately bent petals.
