Altai mountains (or Altai Republic) is definitely our favourite travel destination in Russia, and when an opportunity occurs we always try to go there. You can read the post about our last trip here – Ukok plateau 2012.
The first part of our trip (the southern side of Teletskoye lake) on Google maps:
Almost a year has passed since we went to Altai. It’s a wonderful place with its own atmosphere where you are surrounded only by nature: great mountains, beautiful fields, clouds… It’s impossible to describe all the emotions after visiting this place.
If you visit Russia, and especially Siberia – I recommend that you see this place with your own eyes :)
