It is the "valley" route that started at the Moroznaja ski resort. Take a taxi from Elizovo to Moroznaja ski resort (7 km).

It is forgotten route (1). Only first part is some kind of footpath, then it is over after rope bridge over the river Polovinka. In this area huge building of cottages for tourists is now, and tourist companies took them to so-called "Blue lakes", and the bridge is just left to these "domiki" (cottages).
