Trekking starts from the road before the car park of the Medeo ice rink. The asphalt road with a slight rise goes east along the Kim-Assar river. After one and a half kilometers we turn to the south. Asphalt ends and changes to a dirt road, the road goes to the left bank. The road goes back to the right bank afrer the second bridge - 300 meters. From here we turn right and follow a well-trodden path along the river. The gorge narrows and turns to the left, then expands and changes direction to the right. This path will lead us to a wide meadow. In the middle of the meadow turn left. Moving to the north, we go up to a low ridge. We stop there. To the south of us below is the Kim Assar gorge, and above the meadow from which we come is the Furmanovka Mount, in the northwest you can see the city, in the east - the Kim Assar ridge. There is the place Kacheli (Swing) in an hour's walk up the ridge, where you can take unusual photos.
