Altai circumnavigation

A juicy tour in which you will make a circle around the Golden Ring of Altai. Drive along the beautiful Chui highway, through the Katu-Yaryk pass to the Chulyshman Valley, and then take a cruise along Lake Teletskoye from south to north. We will travel by bus, then by prepared cars, by boat through the entire Teletskoye Lake and again by bus.

As part of a small friendly group, you will see stunning panoramas of the North Chui ridge with its snow-capped peaks, colorful mountains of Altai Mars, the incomparable Kurkure waterfall and a local phenomenon – Stone mushrooms constantly growing from the ground.

Picnics with wonderful views, invigorating walks, campfire gatherings and the Altai bathhouse are waiting for you.
