It is in the Main Caucasian Range. Its height is 4191 m. According to the local population, this name is often associated with severe winds, blizzards, and thunderstorms in the mountains. Mountain Tufan is also registered. This summit is reminiscent of the issue of the Greater Caucasus. The height of this mountain, formed by Jurassic schists, is 4,191 meters.
