республика карачаево-черкессия

The area in the Caucasus mountains called Dombai which is part of the Karachaevo-Cherkessia Republic is most visited by foreigners for wonderful skiing, hiking and climbing. Plain sightseeing also attracts tourists. The views are awesome. Visitors to Dombai are confronted with a sheer wall of mountains crowned with snow capped shark-teeth peaks.

Arkhyz, although inferior in beauty to Dombai, is also a good base for excursions into the backcountry.
