Altai is a unique place, wildlife land on the southern border of Western Siberia. Altai is often called “Russian Tibet” thanks to its amazing nature. It’s famous for a mixture of exotic cultures and legends about the miracles. It has everything: snowy peaks, rough rivers, endless plains, clear lakes and landscapes of incredible beauty. People come here to get away from civilization and spend some time alone in nature.
The local way of life has hardly changed for decades: herds of wild horses still graze here; people believe in spirits and mobile phone signals are hardly received. There are villages that are hard to reach by car. It’s a perfect place for those looking to escape from modern digital world and find themselves surrounded by nature.
