Chekhov Peak, rising 1045 meters above sea level, is located near Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk. This is one of the two highest peaks of the Susunai ridge, the second is the nearby Pushkinskaya Mountain. At the time when Sakhalin belonged to Japan, Chekhov Peak was a sacred mountain. A stunning panorama opens from here: in the east – the Sea of Okhotsk and the Susunai Valley with its lakes Changeable and Tunaychey, from the south – Aniva Bay and Lake Vavayskoye, in the west – the mountains of the Reed Ridge. They say that with clear cloudless weather, you can even see the island of Hokkaido, . aAnd, of course, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk itself.
