Mountain Mashuk is the most interesting one in the Caucasian Mineral Waters region and is the best viewpoint in the vicinity of Pyatigorsk.

A cable car will take you from the upper part of Pyatigorsk to the top of Mashuk for fresh breezes and a great panorama. It takes you 3-4 hours to come up and down the mountain. On your way you’ll be able to visit the Lermontovs Grotto, a small cave which the writer used to visit, the Academic Gallery built in 1851 by an English architect Upton to house one of Pyatigorsks best known springs, and the Proval, a cave open to the sky where 19th century couples would dance on a bridge over the pond of light blue sulfurous water.

    The World According to Herr Willie: The Amazon

    It was the Amazon which I had longed for my whole life. And when it was finally a set deal that I will travel to Brazil with two of my best friends for the Copa do Mundo (World Cup), we really had to start our adventure in the Amazon. I had known about this magical place deep in the rainforest. There was a lodge run by local people of indigenous background, with wooden houses that float on the water and a limited number of visitors. It was eco-tourism as how it should be. To preserve and to celebrate one of the most impressive locations I have seen so far.
