Everyone who comes here, of course, seeks to climb to the top, known as the main local attraction.

It is loudly called the Mountain of Mountains, although the height of this peak is far from the record one and amounts to 4478 meters above sea level, but its silhouette, resembling an almost regular pyramid, seems to embody the idea of ​​perfect geometric shape. And everything perfect, as you know, attracts a Continue reading
