Altai

Altai Trips

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, icy rivers and almost mythical wildlife. Wolves, bears and even the elusive snow leopard can be found here.

Altai holidays are perfect for walking and trekking, and there's a fascinating culture to uncover too. Such is its impressive beauty that in the early 20th century, Russian philosopher and painter Nicholas Roerich came here to search for the entrance to Shambhala, the enlightened land of Tibetan Buddhism.
