At 2687m, Mt Fisht is one of the highest peaks around Sochi. The summit is a splendid trek, if you have three or four days to spare. From Solokhay, a rough road leads 20km to the trailhead. From the trailhead it’s 14km to stunning alpine Khmelnovskogo Lake, where you can camp in view of the surreal lunar landscape and spires of Mt Fisht.

You’ll need to go with a guide from a company such as Masterskaya Priklucheny in Roza Khutor.
