This is Chernorechensky Canyon near Sevastopol, and this is the place where I had the most extreme, emotional and memorable hike.
For four days we walked along the river, inside the canyon. To be precise, we didn’t walk, we climbed the rocks most of our way. With heavy backpacks. Without special equipment. By sheer cliffs. (check the second photo)
Why we did that? Just for one reason - our hike instructor was a crazy guy. We knew about it only when there was no way back. I’m sure no single person from our team agreed to follow this extreme route again.
Every time when we saw a dangerous section of the road, the instructor was saying: “This is the only short difficult route section. Don’t worry! We’ll pass it and then there will have a comfortable road for the rest of route”. No one of us wanted to show a fear before others. So we reached the middle of the canyon on a second day and stuck there. (will be continued in the next post)
