Approach notes

From Moscow fly to Mineralnie Vody, then take a bus to Nalchick. Register at the border guard, put down the list of crags you are to visit. Take to the tourist camp in the Chaikovsky street, 3 which is quite near to the local trade area in Russian it sounds like RYNOK. From tis camp there is a daily bus or something like Russian variant of Landrover which can succesfully take you to the camp if God helps and weather permit. The road long 50km starts in what is like patched main road and ends in something like rough terrain.

The territory of the camp itself is not hedged so animals can stroll along. Herds of wildlife are grazing and can be found begging for sugar and salt.

No shooting is permitted in the area. 

Camping is permitted during the daytime. For visitors entering border zone permission is obligatory. In summer, the Bezengi camp inhabits up to 2000 tourists. Traditionally it is visited by Czechs and Americans.
