After breakfast, the group was divided into three SUVs and went to storm Mount Mamai. Previously, we rented on Mamai winter house, which the local calls "Paphos”. Unlike other winter houses, Paphos is a two-story cottage with a shower, toilet and wireless internet. The uniqueness lies in the fact that it is located in the wild taiga. Here, guests can relax from moving, and, in case of rain, have lunch in the dining room.
On Mamai the group was met by the local caretaker — Sergey. Together with his wife, he showed the guests how the life of the taiga village was arranged, showed the winter houses and told about the peculiarities of the surrounding nature.
For lunch stewed pork with mushrooms and herbs in the cauldron was cooked. Salad with home vegetables with Adygei cheese was cut with garlic sauce. Also, cutting from spicy lard, smoked bacon and pepper basturma was made. For the tea croissants with apples and chocolate were baked.
After lunch and swimming in the mountain lake, the group went down in SUVs on the Federal highway and went to the Baikal Biosphere Reserve. Guests slowly walked along the cedar alley and suspended bridges. On the way, they collected blueberries and cranberries for tea. Dinner was organized on the territory of the reserve, in the gazebo on the river bank. In the evening we returned to the hotel.
