Mount Akhun is a stand-alone mountain in the Khostinsky City District of Sochi, Russia. Wedged between the Matsesta and Khosta rivers, this karst massif is the highest point of the Sochi littoral.
The peak of Greater Akhun is 663 metres above sea level. Its summit is marked by a 100-foot-tall Romanesque tower. It was built in 1936 from limestone ashlar. The tower offers panoramic views of the Western Caucasus as far south as Gagra and Pitsunda. An 11-km-long serpentine road leads to the tower from the Sputnik Hotel.
Lesser Akhun rises to an elevation of 501 m. Nearby are the ruins of a medieval Christian church. The entire massif contains about 20 caves.
