The Arkhyz mountain region is located in the Republic of Karachayevo-Cherkessia. This area is famous all over the Russian Federation for the purest natural mineral water here. This area of the North Caucasus Mountains sits at above a thousand feet above the sea level. In the Karachay language, Arkhyz means "a beautiful girl". The area is truly, one of the most glorious in the otherwise extraordinary Russian wilderness.
