Partisan glade is an amazing place where there are high alpine cold winds and warm air currents coming from the coniferous forest at the foot of the mountains. Here we are greeted by lush alpine forbs and pine branches with soft needles like silk. An evening of stories about the Lago-Naki plateau, the All-Union Thirtieth Route and epic memories of past ascents.

Day 2
Intense day. We will pass two passes: Guzeripl and Armenian and get to Fisht shelter. From the passes, panoramas open to the peaks: Fisht, Oshten, Psheho-Su and the mountains of Krasnaya Polyana.
Accommodation at the shelter. Fisht Shelter is located in a place that is beautiful at any time of the year. A shelter framed by mountain ridges hid quietly at the foot of Mount Fisht. In summer, this is a wonderful corner with a stream full of pure hydrogen, in winter there is a fluffy meadow, the depth of snow here reaches 16 meters in some years.
In the evening, after rest, we have an acclimatization exit to the Small Fishtinsky glacier.

Brief information on the area
Fisht is one of the dominant peaks located near the Lago-Naki plateau. Altitude is 2867 m above sea level. In prehistoric times, it was the bottom of the Tethys Ocean. Currently, it is interesting in that on its slopes is located the lowest glacier in Europe - the Big Fishtinsky.
Climbing Fisht is an interesting technical route (difficulty category 1B). It is well suited for the first climbing experience, it will also be interesting for experienced tourists (climbers) - the nature of the Lago-Naki plateau fascinates with its pristine nature, and the panoramas that open from the top of the mountain are unparalleled in beauty and richness. Also, many on this route are attracted by the opportunity to walk on a real glacier in cats in the middle of summer and go through a simple ice practice, accompanied by experienced guides (instructors).
Photography enthusiasts will also like this route - not difficult approaches and waste, as well as the opportunity to visit the most beautiful corners of the Caucasus Nature Reserve during acclimatization and extra days make the thread of a hike (ascent) pleasant and varied.
