Golden Altai

We would like to invite you to one of the most fascinating motorcycle trips in mountain Altai. Golden Altai – unique route, that no accident is “central” to our programs and allows you to fully enjoy all the splendor of this wonderful region. It is perfect for riders of intermediate level training and it is assessed at the 4th level of complexity (out of 6).
This tour is made up in the way that every rider could observe not only natural attractions of the Altai, but also that people created with their own hands during the whole period of domesticating this severe region. Our trip begins and ends in the city of Barnaul, the capital of the Altai region.
We will drive along the Chuya Highway, visit the museum of V.M.Shuckshin, have a rest in the eminent hotel “Manscherok”, honor the memory on the place of death of Mikhail Evdokimov and have a look on Belokuricha city-resort, where we will bathe in hot radon baths. Also we will visit Pazyryk mound. There are no words to describe all the diversity of this region.

But the most important goal of our trips is to show you wonders of nature: rivers Katun, Chulishman and Bija, breathtaking waterfall Korbu, mountain pass Katu-Jarik and the pearl of the Altai - Lake Teletskoye. Much of the coast and its vicinity aren’t subjected to the influence of civilization and remained the same as they were thousands of years ago. The shores of the lake - mountains covered with dense forest and steep cliffs with century-old cedars. The purest mountain water rarely warms above 10 C, that is why it is almost impossible to swim there. But the view is amazing. Lake Teletskoye, like a magnet, attracts people due to it’s unique beauty, mystique, incomprehensibility and elegance.
Our tour includes 4-hour ferry crossing to the opposite side of the incredible Lake Teletskoye. Mountain pass Katu-Jarik is a man-made sight that was constructed not so long ago in 1989. It is unique in that no classic characteristic passes of symmetry: the serpentine rise of the serpentine descent. The pass is a descent from the Ulagan plateau in the valley of the river Chulyshman. This 3,5 kilometer-long zigzag of 9 loops cut in the 70º slope of the mountain. Visitors can disperse from oncoming cars only on the corners (there are small pockets).
When people visit this place the heart starts beating faster and the breathing quickens. Car goes downhill to the right and to the left at the highest point of the pass is an observation deck, offering stunning views: the bottom of a narrow green ribbon winds Chulyshman, on the opposite side of the gorge — Chulyshman plateau terminating in steep rocky valley walls, approximately one kilometer-high, which flow down nearly 100-foot waterfall.

The tour “Golden Alatai” will not leave anyone indifferent, in the long run after the trip you will make yourself at home in Russia, and you'll learn this world in a new light.
