The beauty of the steppes surrounded by mountain ranges resembles space landscapes from fantastic literature - the most authentic part of Altai immerses as much as possible in its ancient history of shamanism and paganism - riding on horses greatly facilitates the journey: there is no heavy backpack behind you, you can sit and admire what is happening around ... - not the most popular destination, which means the absence of a large number of travelers - the way to the starting point of the direct route lies from Barnaul along the Chuysky tract, which is one of the 10 most beautiful roads in the world.
Horse riding makes the journey much easier: there is no heavy backpack behind you, you can sit and admire what is happening around. Horseback riding requires at least a little experience with these amazing animals, so that the feeling of horseback riding is not new to the traveler.
Weather. We must be prepared for a variety of weather conditions. the nature of the highlands is a great place to surprise with its surprises, so you should be wise in choosing your equipment and clothing. During the day it can be very hot (up to 25-30), and at night the temperature can drop to 0 and below. Precipitation level is also impossible to predict in advance, in late August - early September snow may fall. But during this period, the slopes and high-mountainous steppes acquire bogryan and golden shades.
