At the foot of the Taganay cliffs originate huge stone fields in form of broad stone rivers coming down the slopes. Deposits are very beautiful. It seems that the mighty Taganay shook once under the weight of its cliffs and threw off in different directions its stone clothing, splitting into huge shapeless blocks. And now these huge rocks face the traveler in their untouched beauty, fascinating by their greatness and beauty in bright sunny days.
In bad weather Taganay - is a severe and menacing guard on the path of winds and clouds. Its top, billowing into the sky, is shrouded by veil of mist. And wind in the cliffs is buzzing and howling.

Here's how described the sunrise on Taganay P. P. Anosov: "Yet there were stars in the night sky, but I was already awake and waited for dawn. Soon I saw a dim light on the East and stars began gradually to die down and later disappeared, the light increased, and the horizon gradually became visible: it was possible to distinguish the tops of the mountains. Immediately the eastern horizon began to be covered by the purple glow, and I saw a dark ocean, on it were floating fiery tops of the mountains. I briefly admired this image: the crimson glow increased, dark ocean disappeared, I began to see rows of mountains, the dawn lightened them, and I saw another, more charming picture.
