Sometimes it is difficult to climb because of stones, but one can use good trails. It depends on the traveler. Our waterfall is situated in a beautiful place. We can rest there, made some pictures. If this trip is in August there should be nice berries like lingenberry and water berry.
Then we keep on climbing to the top of Pionerskaya Mount. It will be about three hours. During the route the beautiful sites are all around. They are incredibly magnificent landscapes and seascapes, the panoramic of Gulf of Cross and Egvekinot communities. There also might be berries on the slope.
