Angle view of the mount Karaul-Oba (Tatar: Qaravul Oba, Russian: Karaulnaya) from Cape Kapchik, located a few kilometers westwards from Novy Svet (New World) settlement on a tourist Golitsyn’s Trap.

Rocky ledges of Karaul-Oba massif is a State complex natural monument. This ancient 341-meter-high coral reef of the Jurassic period (341 m.) has rather a complicated specific structure: plateau-like area with rock walls, crevices, ridges, stone labyrinths are replaced by deep long saddles. Almost from the very sea, sharp teeth of the cliffs are jutting out, that is a distinctive feature of the mountain. ‘Karaul-Oba’ means ‘Watch Mountain’ or ‘Guard Peak’ in Crimean Tatar. It is reckoned among many unique natural wonders of Sudak’s surroundings.
