Mostovsky District:
fantastic mountains and hot baths for a cold winter


#balneology
Everyone remembers the famous lines from the song: "And I always miss something: in winter - summer, in autumn - spring"? If you, as the lyrical hero of this work, feel uncomfortable with the onset of frost, you have a unique opportunity to plunge into real summer in winter. This can be done on the territory of Krasnodar region, namely, in the thermal springs of Mostovsky District.
Mostovsky district of Krasnodar region is an amazing place both in nature and in terms of tourism. It is almost entirely located in the North Caucasus and borders on the Caucasus Biosphere Reserve - a unique ecosystem that has been preserved almost in its original form. The mountainous and foothill part of the region offers dizzying views of the mountain peaks of the North Caucasus.

But, perhaps, the most favorite place for tourists is the hot thermal springs with mineral water, where the water rises from a depth of up to 2600 meters and reaches a temperature of over 80 degrees. Such natural baths will definitely warm you at any time of the year.

Hot (or thermal) springs are a special spring, a place where hot (from 20 degrees Celsius) water comes to the surface of the earth.

Such a high temperature is given to it by the geothermal warmth of the earth's mantle.

Some countries use the hot spring to heat their homes. For example, the city of Reykjavik (the capital of Iceland) is completely heated by a thermal spring, while others (including Russia) use thermal springs to operate some power plants.

Many solid particles dissolve in thermal water. It is in such water that a huge amount of dissolved minerals, such as calcium, lithium and radium, is contained. Perhaps, that is why the medicinal properties of this water are simply magnificent. Many people have cured their chronic illnesses with just a couple of baths in the thermal spring.

The mineral spas of the Mostovsky district are used both for baths and for drinking cures. The main healing factor of this unique gift of nature is the content of nitrogen and silicic acid, which provide it with a high ability to soften, cleanse and, at the same time, dry the skin, acting in a tonic manner on the connective tissue and elastic structures of the skin, tissues and organs, as well as on the central nervous system, improving the general condition of the body.

According to the conclusion of the Pyatigorsk Scientific Research Institute of Resortology and Physiotherapy, the use of thermal waters from the springs of Mostovsky district is recommended for:
• diseases of the digestive system;
• nonspecific respiratory diseases;
• diseases of the cardiovascular system;
• premature (early) aging of tissues.

External use of thermal waters (bathrooms, swimming pools) is recommended for:
• diseases of the cardiovascular system;
• diseases of the central nervous system of a functional nature;
• violations of tissue trophism;
• skin diseases;
• diseases of the genitourinary system.

Mostovskoy district is represented by recreation centers with an affordable cost for a full-fledged family pastime and recreation. Almost all resorts have a good number of rooms and work all year round, and being in the water is allowed until 23.00 and later. Most of our SPA-resorts offer tourists a rich excursion program in the mountains of the North Caucasus, Krasnodar region. We have created all the conditions for organizing corporate events, as well as celebrations, including weddings and wedding tours.

Since the flow of tourists in both winter and summer is quite large here, comfortable recreation centers with thermal pools have been built on the territory of the district, which operate all year round. The tourist infrastructure is well developed here - hotels, sanatoria, recreation centers, excursion programs. For vacationers, a wide variety of services are offered in the field of tourism, ecotourism, recreation and spa treatment.

By the way, Mostovskoy district is also famous for the monuments of archeology: the oldest remains of Neanderthals in the entire North Caucasus were discovered near the village of Barakaevskaya, in the Monashenskaya and Barakaevskaya caves of the Gubsky gorge. There are remnants of ancient settlements in the outskirts of some villages, and in the Yatyrgvarta mountain range, petroglyphs were found - rock inscriptions and drawings left by the hand of a primitive man (III millennium BC).
Note to traveler

Mostovsky district is located on the border with the Caucasus Biosphere Reserve and the Psebay Reserve - this determines the large (more than 50) tourist routes and trails of varying difficulty levels (both one-day and multi-day) in the mountains and foothills, along mountain rivers, streams and waterfalls. Routes to Malye Bambaki, Mount Tkhach, Urushten canyon, Skirda ridge and snowy peak Yatyrgvarta and many other sights of the North Caucasus begin here. Here are just a few of them ...

Zhelaniy Waterfall is located within a 30-minute walk from the central road of the village, on the picturesque slope of the Gerpegem ridge. Most of the route passes in the shade of a protected forest, where in spring you can harvest wild garlic. At the very end of the path, you will need to walk along a picturesque stream surrounded by huge burdocks and ferns. The route is not difficult, however, at the end of the route, climb 20 meters over the stones. It is not recommended to go immediately after rain. When you reach the stone arch in front of the stream, be sure to make a wish!

Rock Shapka. The route starts in the village of Perevalka and goes through beech forests to the top of Shapka rock. On the way, in the ancient forest, you can come across stone sculptures created by nature. And at the highest point there is an observation deck on the gorge of the Malaya Laba River and the mountains of the Psebay Reserve and the Caucasus Biosphere Reserve. The summit of Shapka is quite flat, so you can safely lie on the stones on a warm day at an altitude of 910 meters above sea level.

Shakhan ridge. Mirfogut mountains begin at the village of Andryuki and stretch in a chain to the border of the Karachay-Cherkess Republic. Altitudes on average 1000 m - 1200 m. The excursion includes a visit to the Resurrection-Mikhailovsky bishop's courtyard (male monastery), which is located at an altitude of 800 m. The Shakhan ridge is part of the Skalisty ridge. On a small part of it, 5 km, there are 4 peaks with the same names: Shakhan-1 (1,156 m), Shakhan-2 (1,207 m), Shakhan-3 (1,1257 m), Shakhan-4 (1,297 m). The ridge stretches along the borders of the Mostovsky district with the Karachay-Cherkess Republic. There is a dirt road almost to the very top (in dry weather). A hermit monk lives in one of the high caves.
