Megakachels or mountain panoramic swings are high-altitude swings located on the edge of a steep cliff of the Aibga ridge, on the territory of the year-round mountain resort Krasnaya Polyana (formerly Gorki Gorod) in Krasnaya Polyana (Esto-Sadok).
Megachachels are located on the edge of a 360-degree panoramic viewing platform, which, in turn, is located at an altitude of +2200 meters from sea level at the "Glade 2200"mark.
The mountain panoramic swing has a height of 7 meters. This is an all-season attraction above the clouds. The flights on the swing last 3 minutes.
Swinging on a mountain swing, you will "float" over a picturesque mountain valley and a cliff at an altitude of more than 100 meters and not only experience a feeling of weightlessness, but also be able to enjoy the opening panorama of the Caucasus Mountains.
During the swing, the photographer will take photos of the "flight", which can then be purchased for a fee.
The reliability and safety of the swing is guaranteed by the high level of quality of the Austrian equipment. The massive and reliable foundation of the swing is fixed on the rock using ground anchors and an innovative epoxy adhesive composition. The support frame and foundations are designed not only with a large margin of safety, but also taking into account the seismicity of 9 points.
Restrictions: from 7 years old, weight up to 100 kilograms.
The cost of the attraction is 800 rubles. Attention! The cost may vary. We recommend that you check before visiting.
Tickets for the swing can be purchased at the ticket office located here - on the panoramic platform.
How to climb to Megachachels
In order to get to the Mega-Swing, you need to get to the top of the "Glade 2200".
You can do this on three gondola cable cars (closed cabins with seats inside, with a capacity of up to 8 people): Krasnaya Polyana K-1, Relict forest K-2 andVertex K-3.
The K-1 cable car starts from the lower station of the cable cars of the Krasnaya Polyana resort, located at the Polyana 540 mark. She lifts the guests to the station"Glade 960". At the Polyana 960 station, it is necessary to transfer to the K-2 cable car, which will raise to the "1460 meters" mark, where another transfer should be made to the K-3 cable car, which lifts guests to the "Polyana 2200" mark.
You can go up and down on the cable cars all year round with walking tickets (visiting the resort without skating), and in the winter season also with a ski pass.
If you climb from the Polyana 960 mark, then you should go on two cable cars K-2 and K-3. Learn more about Glade 2200...
In the summer season, you can walk up to the Polyana 2200 mark from Polyana 960 along mountain trails (free of charge).
After you have made the ascent to the top of "Polyana 2200", you need to go a little to the left to the restaurant "Height" and climb the stairs leading directly to the 360° panoramic platform, on which the megachachels are located.
Megacheli, together with the megazipline and the suspension bridge over the abyss, is part of the high-water amusement park Gorky Fly, located at altitudes of 2200-2360 meters above sea level at the marks "Glade 2200" and "Black Pyramid 2300".
Megacachels work all year round, but under favorable weather conditions.
The 360° panoramic platform is available free of charge and all year round.
The K-1, K-2 and K-3 cable cars operate all year round.
