Places of interest in Altay

    If you are looking for sightseeing experience and emotional excitement then Altay region might totally meet this requirement. Incredible beauty of the alpine turquoise lakes (Shavla, Karakol, Kucherla, Ak-Kem and Teletskoye lakes), strength of powerful mountain rivers (Katun, Biya and Chuya), peace and vastness of Altay valleys (Plateau Ukok), ancient burials of Turkic people (Pazyryk burials) living here thousands of years ago – once seeing all this beauty you will never be able to forget it. Besides these places possess unbelievable energy, mystery and - what people look for such a long time – quiescence and internal harmony.  

    When planning your visit to Altay Mountains take a horseback riding or trekking tour high to the mountains to see tremendous alpine lakes Shavla and Karakol. Bright colors of the alpine meadows, cedars' majesty and emerald color of the alpine lakes surrounded by sharp peaks that are covered with sparkling snow truly create an unforgettable picture.

    Do not also miss an opportunity to spend a couple of days at Teletskoye lake or Altyn-Kol (in Turkic ‘Gold lake’). This lake is considered as the second largest one after Baikal and attracts a great deal of tourists to spend their holiday time at its shores when fishing or just having nice recreation time. 
    Katun river is another piece of cake. If you dream of seeing wild Altay nature and places that are difficult to reach by car or foot then choose the river sightseeing. Take a week river rafting tour – then you will kill one bird with two stones: experience adventure travel and feel the true wildness of Altay place. 
    Sightseeing tours particularly in Altay Mountains have at least three advantages: once having chosen them you will touch to the history of Ancient Turkic civilization, experience the spirit of adventure and will be able to increase and strengthen your body and spirit spending your time in such a wonderful and divine place.
