13 Abaza auls in Karachay-Cherkessia are part of four municipal districts. Inzhich-Chukun, Elburgan, Psyzh, Kubina and Kara-Pago are combined into the Abaza region, where the mid-mountain relief prevails. Staro-Kuvinsk, Novo-Kuvinsk, Apsua, Malo-Abazinsk, Abaza-Khabl and Tapanta are located in the predominantly flat Adyge-Khabl region. Krasny Vostok occupies a mountainous and hilly area in the Malokarachaevsky district at an altitude of about 1000 meters above sea level. Koydan is located in the foothill zone of the Ust-Dzhegutinsky district.
The nature of each municipal district is unique and differs from its neighbors in its own characteristics: some are dominated by mountainous areas with a large number of meadows and forests; in some, there are many river valleys, which in places form majestic canyons. In addition, some areas are distinguished by an abundance of steppes rich in fertile land.
However, all these areas have one thing in common: rich nature and mild climate, which together create favorable conditions for life.
