When considering a visit to Kara Dag, think "jagged mountains," "Jurassic landscape," and the famous Golden Gate. Kara Dag is a nature reserve on the southeastern coast of Crimea near the small resort town of Koktebel.
Kara dag means "black mountain" in the Crimean Tatar language. Kara Dag emerged as a volcano during Jurassic times and over the intervening 150-160 million years the lava rocks have weathered into interesting, sometimes fantastical, shapes.
