Trip Info

We tried to make this trip intense and packed with adventure. In terms of terrain, we’ll have mountain rivers, lakes, forests, valleys, moraines, glaciers and snow-capped peaks. The elements of the extreme will include river wades, mountain passes and, if we’re lucky, a trip on GAZ-66 – the king of Russian off-road technology. Not forgetting a 17-hour drive from Novosibirsk to Tyungur. If you don’t fall asleep, you may observe a whole region of the Russian Federation from steppes along the Chuisky Trakt (Chuisky highway) to the villages and ails of the Republic of Altai Mountains.

But above all, expect the romance of being in the wilderness: campfires, guitar, tents, tea with herbs and peculiar Russian trekking cuisine, Russian sauna (banya) and good company. And all this with the background of magnificent Altai Mountains, which will provide spectacular shots for any photographer with any equipment and training.
