Gora Lysaya

Driving the memorable 4x4 road to Bald Mountain in Teberda

Mount Bald (Gora Lysaya) is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.583m (8,474ft) above the sea level, located in the Karachay–Cherkess Republic of Russia.

Set high in the Caucasus Mountains, to the north of Teberda, the dirt road to the summit is totally unpaved. A 4x4 vehicle is required. The road is usually impassable in winters. The drive is very steep. Starting at Teberda, the elevation gain is 1.200 meters. The area is a paragliding paradise.
