Altai

Adventure Holidays to Altai

The Altai Mountains mark the spot where Russia, China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan meet, and the devastatingly beautiful landscape makes a journey here unforgettable. The region is home to more than 7000 lakes – many a dazzling jade-blue colour – as well as lush forests, icey rivers and almost mythical wildlife. Wolves, bears and even the elusive snow leopard can be found here. This is a great place walking and trekking adventures, and there's a fascinating culture to uncover too. Such is its impressive beauty that in the early 20th century Russian philosopher and painter Nikolai Rerikh came here to search for the entrance to Shambala, the enlightened land of Tibetan Buddhism.
