Briefly about this tour

The village of Chemal was founded in the middle of the 19th century. The name of the village means "anthill with ants" in translation from the local language. At the very beginning, only 30 families lived here, but under the USSR, a real government resort was built in the village. It was not by chance that we chose this particular region, i.e. The Chemal region rightfully bears the title of one of the most interesting travel destinations in Altai.

Tour program.

Day 1. Rilet/arrival in Barnaul, meeting at the airport/train station. Then we go by car to the base, it is about 7 hours of travel (420 km), along the way we will stop for snacks. At first, our path lies through the steppes of the Altai Territory, but soon they will be replaced by the mountainous landscapes of the Altai Republic. The road runs along the right bank of the Katun River. If possible, we will be able to stop at the local souvenir market, visit the museum of Altai culture in the village of Chemal. In Chemal we will buy all our personal "nishtyaks", i.e. this is the last large village on our way. Our base is located on the banks of the Edigan River, 8 kilometers from the village of the same name. And very close to the camp is the place where the river flows into the large river of Gorny Altai - the Katun. The base camp is located at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level among the mountains. There are practically no mosquitoes here, so nothing interferes with a comfortable sleep in the fresh mountain air. In the evening we will have dinner, sauna (optional) and preparation for the upcoming hike. Overnight in tents or pre-booked cabins.

Day 2. Day trip 20 km. before the hike! We put all personal belongings, sleeping bags and groceries in saddlebags. The rest of your belongings can be stored in your backpacks. After getting acquainted with the horses and the fitting of the harness, we will once again review the basics of safety and riding rules. After that, our first horse trek begins upstream of the Edichta River. Along the country road along the Edigan village up to the mountains. The landscapes around us are gradually changing. The lower pastures are replaced by hayfields, and then by the cedar taiga. Our ascent to the top takes place at a calm pace, i.e. horses experience an additional load when climbing up (elevation difference 1100 meters). Around us is a panorama of mountains of unreal beauty. We will stop for the night in the Kyzyl-Gak tract. Blooming at this time of the year, a huge alpine meadow under the Tamanyol pass will be our home. Almost all travelers stop here for rest, because there is a long road ahead.

Day 3. outdoor tram and forward to Tamanyol pass. At the top of the pass, a pyramid "kutai" is built of stones. At this point, you must definitely stop and lower your horses, thus thanking the spirit of the pass. On the slopes of these mountains, the snow does not melt until mid-summer. The pass is located at an altitude of 2070 above sea level, so it is quite windy and cool here. And nature is scarce. These are stunted plants and stone deposits. But all around us are still endless mountain ranges. When descending from the pass, we will go on foot to make it easier for the horses to maneuver between the stones. There, at the foot of the pass, there is a small mountain lake, from which the Chemal River originates. Descent to the valley of the Toguskol river. Overnight in this valley at a tourist camp. We will stay here for 2 days. Those who wish (for extra lats) can go to the bathhouse

One of the most mysterious corners of Gorny Altai is the wild Ukok plateau, located far from civilization at an altitude of more than 2000 m. under the sacred five-domed mountain Tabyn-Bogdo-Ola, standing at the junction of four borders: Mongolia, China, Kazakhstan and Russia. The name of this place translates as "listen to heaven". If you have already traveled on horseback in the mountains and are ready to make this active journey, then welcome to our team.
