Lovely place to visit. Much wilderness, lakes, rivers, villages, hotels, good roads and development. The sad thing is that the development is increasing so much it is in danger of destroying the reason people go there. However, at the moment it is still a fabulous place to visit. The fish are all small now due to over fishing. If you... More

It was a breath taking trek in midsummer from the village of Tyungur to the Belucha mountain which is located on the China-Mongolia-Russia border. Best to be done in groups of more than 6 people with local guides all the way and professional advise for the preparation of food and equipment for the participants. Not advised for children younger then... More

What is Altai? Average Russian kid will tell you it’s mountains somewhere in Siberia. Many tourists even happened to be there. The thing is that there’s some kind of tourist area over there in Altai where man may feel well enough to stop seeking for more deep knowing of this place. Which is a pity!!! Because non-touristic Altai is a... More
