Ascent to the "Dome of Three Lakes" in Actra

The Aktru Gorge is located in the mountains of the North Chui range of the Altai Republic. Our hike will include an interesting automobile part both along the Chui tract and along the arid Kurai steppe to the alpine camp. 

We will camp in tents and make radial trips light to the Blue Lake and the Bolshoy Aktru glacier, which offers a beautiful view of the very top of Aktru – one of the four thousandth peaks of the Altai Mountains. 

The program also includes a training ascent to the Uchitel Pass (altitude 3,100 m). And finally, we will climb to the top of the Dome of Three Lakes(height 3556 m). Of course, we will not be able to do without training in mountaineering skills and special equipment.

It is possible to organize a hike on request, on any date from 01.07. to 31.08 for individual groups of 4 people or more.
