Trekking in the Altai Mountains
For active travelers we are pleased to offer the trekking program in Alati. Altai (Altay) – “The Golden Mountains” is the mountain land on the south of Siberia which keeps ecological purity and untouched wild nature so far. The communication with local people, many of whom are followers of exotic doctrines- pagans (Shamanists), followers of Roerikh and Old Believers (“starovery”) – gives an unique social experience. A number of archeological artefacts (from 1,500,000 BC!), including rock paintings and Paleolithical sits are on our route, it makes visit to Altai not only outdoor adventure but captivating trip as well!
This unique trip is based on the idea of hiking through mountain taiga to beautiful Kucherla Lake, then crossing simple pass (for acclimatization!) and placing a base camp (BC) on Akkem lake in front of amazing Akkem wall. Then, the travellers make side trips to the Akkem glacier, spectacular Valley of 7 Lakes and mysterious Yarlu Valley with Roerikh followers shrine or make simple climbing to Mt. Yarlu (1B, 3370 m) or Mt. Bronia (“Armor”, 2A, 3291 m) – Optional.
