What awaits you

Day 1

Altai of indescribable beauty Leaving Gorno-Altaysk, we will head for the mountains of our region covered with eternal snows. We will drive along the Chuisky tract, the most beautiful road in Russia, talking about nature, history and legends of Altai along the way. We will overcome 2 passes and stop to admire their panoramas

  • Seminsky pass (Dal Menku) at an altitude of 1717 m above sea level. Here, at the turn of the Northern and Central Altai, you will understand why the pass was called sebi (fortress), imagine the marching troops of the Scythians and Tatar-Mongols.
  • Chike-Taman pass, a serpentine mountain surrounded by granite rocks of the Terekta ridge. Like all passes, this is a place of power for the Altaians.

On the first day, you will also find:

  • The Katun Terraces are a visual aid to the formation of a mountain landscape.
  • The Igulmensky Rapid is a picturesque place of the confluence of the Igulmen and Katun rivers.
  • Ice waterfall Shirlak, buying up a tear from a girl who threw herself off a cliff.
  • And, of course, the non-freezing Geyser Lake of amazing turquoise color: I will tell you why the locals consider it magical.

Altai - a repository of places of power and cult You will learn the main thing about the ethnography of the region and about the beliefs of the indigenous Turkic peoples. In our program

  • Kalbak-Tash - a place of worship since the Neolithic era. An open-air museum, where you can examine ancient petroglyphs and get acquainted with the runic Orkhon script.
  • Yaloman settlement and the remains of the foundation of the ancient Turkic fortress. We will put the imagination to work and see the ancient city with a fair of different peoples and tribes.
  • Ininsky steles - an ancient Turkic memorial complex, four tall stones that have stood here for thousands of years. In Altai, they believe that they can move.
  • Merging Katun with wayward Chuyawhere the Turkic civilization was born. At this stop, I will show you a large boulder with fossils of marine animals.
  • Ethnographic Park Chui-Oozy: you will see petroglyphs again and taste the national cuisine in a local cafe.

Day 2

Mars in Altai or Katu-Yaryk pass After breakfast, we will head to one of two incredible locations (depending on the time of year)

  • To the mountains of Kyzyl-Chin (all year round, except for spring). They are painted in different shades of red, like Martian soil. These fantastic landscapes with vibrant hills, river and surrounding mountains will remind you of the Wild West and provide hundreds of photo angles.
  • To the Katu-Yaryk pass (in spring or at your choice instead of "Mars" all year round). It is difficult and even dangerous, so we will not go down it. At the same time, the most striking view of the winding road of the canyon will open to you just from above, in the valley of the Chulyshman River.

Having traveled more than 430 km in two days, we will return to Gorno-Altaysk.
