The highest point of the Gunib district is the Mayak (Lighthouse) Mountain with a height of 2,352 meters. Today our team passed the traverse of the massif, visiting the famous Gunib tunnel on the descent. It was punched specifically for the passage of Emperor Alexander II in the 60s of the XIX century.  As a result, we got about 20 kilometers with a height difference of up to 1 kilometer. The weather was great, everyone in the group walked at a different pace, but steadily. We admired the grandiose views of mountainous Dagestan, saw soaring eagles under us. Many thanks to the local guys who accompanied us and showed us the right way! All the participants of this climb were just happy with how they spent that day!
