A special route for toboggan riding (the sleigh of Canadian Indians) has been opened at the Rosa Khutor Resort in Sochi.
The start of the route is located 1350 meters above the sea level, in a few-minutes’ walk from the top station of the “Zapovedny Les” cableway.
The route length makes up 2 km, and the altitude difference amounts to 180 meters. Toboggan is the oldest type of sleigh that became widespread in late XIX century. The Canadian Indians used it to transport cargoes and people.
If you bother to take the plane from any Moscow airport to the city of Sochi, you will definitely never regret about it. This town is rather small, though one of the longest settlements in the world – it is stretched along the Black sea coast for about 150 km.
