Information -

Mount Yurt is very beautiful and unusual, in one of our trips we managed to fly around this mountain by helicopter. The mountain has a round base and a high peak, which also has a round shape, the slopes of the peak are steep, it is impossible to climb the mountain, the slopes of the mountain are made of non-solid rock, so climbing the mountain is dangerous, and we do not recommend doing this. You can admire the mountain from the side or go to its foot. The Bozzhira tract is rich in its natural, bizarre formations of different shapes and the Yurt Mountain is one of them. The mountain is composed of Cretaceous prehistoric deposits. We invite you to visit the Bozzhira tract and see all its unique natural attractions.
