Ulagan Highlands. Horse riding tour to Altai

  • 9 more photos

An exciting horseback riding journey awaits you in the heart of the Ulagan mountains (Kuraisky and Sailyugemsky ridges), to the peaks covered with unmelting snow, from where panoramic views of the North Chuisky, Kuraisky and Katunsky ridges open.

The splendor of the views along the way is breathtaking and will not leave anyone indifferent! The frequently changing picture of the opening vertices will not allow you to often hide photographic equipment in cases. Here travelers will find untouched taiga, diverse herbs of high-mountain meadows, countless amazingly beautiful lakes and, of course, crystal clear mountain air.

You will encounter very beautiful lakes, which cannot be reached by car, but can be reached by horse without any problems.
