The brief description of the tour

The Kogutai spur of the Greater Caucasian Range begins from the west summit of the Dongus-Orun Massive and leads in the north – east direction. On this spur there are two rock summits: Bolshoi and Maly Kogutai.

From the Cheget Glade cross the right bank of the river Dongus-Orun over the bridge that is located just near the Cheget Glade in the lower part of the Dongus-Orun Gorge. From here go to the Kogutai Glade. In the distance of 50-80 meters from the upper and left glade corner of the motion direction begins the good path which goes to the upper forest – line. The further ascent lies over the subalpine grasslands. The path comes to the left side of the Kogutai River. The river has some streams. Cross it over the stones and beams. Then go up along the left bank of the Kogutai River over the bottom of the morainal valley. Keep the south direction till the end of the Bolshoi Kogutai Glacier. The end of the tongue hangs on the steep rounded rocks. It is possible the ice falling. Don’t come up to the glacier.

Don’t go to this route if it was raining yesterday because the steep earth path from the Kogutai Glacier to the upper forest-line becomes slippery and dangerous. Don’t decline from the path.
