Altai mountains is an amazing and very beautiful region, which was told and written a lot of enthusiastic words. European tourists these places attract every year more and more often called Gorny Altai, “the Siberian Switzerland” owing to striking similarity of the Altai mountains and the Swiss Alps, such as they were once, before the tourist invasion. Even the Altai mountains is often compared with Tibet. According to many legends, somewhere here is the entrance to the mystical country Shambala (Belovodye, as the old believers of Altai) — the country touch to the Mystery, the knowledge of the truth and enlightenment.
Altai is a country of contrasts. There are many unique and completely different from each other climatic systems. Due to the pronounced vertical zoning, it is possible for one trip to see vast tracts of coniferous taiga on the slopes, steeply at times sheer cliffs to the water, Alpine meadows with legendary edelweisses, covered with a snow-capped mountain peaks, cold rivers, raging rapids and waterfalls high in the headwaters and at peace-calm in the lower reaches, expanses of dry steppes and rocky Gornostay landscapes of intermountain basins. It is the highest mountain region of Siberia. The mountains here rise to a height of over 4000 m above sea level and the peaks are perennially covered by snow. The Highest peak of the Mountain of Altai — Belukha mountain. Its height is 4506 meters above sea level.
Gorny Altai is famous not only for its peaks, but also diverse and unique landscapes. There are a lot of lakes of various sizes — from very tiny to huge. Biggest and most famous lake in the Mountain Altai — the lake Teletskoye. Its depth of over 300 metres long, just under 90 miles. Lake Teletskoe is among 20 deepest lakes in the world and is the second largest natural reservoir of fresh water, conceding superiority only to lake Baikal.
It abounds in caves, which are unique objects of nature with a unique underground landscape, a special microclimate, fauna and flora. Many of these caves served as dwelling sites for prehistoric man, as evidenced by numerous finds. Here is the deepest cave in Siberia and the Far East “mine of the Altai”, with a depth of over 300 meters, and the length of the passages several kilometres!

The weather sometimes is very capricious and fickle, which is not surprising, because this is the place where clouds live. Often you can observe a fascinating spectacle, right in front of the cloud appears and grows, creeping out of a nearby mountain. So, do not blame the meteorologist for his unfulfilled predictions. The climate is generally characterized as sharply continental, which, again, is not surprising, as the Altai is located almost in the center of the continent, far from any ocean. But climatic conditions are very different in different regions of the Altai mountains, they are determined by the height of the area and prevailing winds. The warmest place in Western Siberia and the pole of cold, located in the territory of the Altai Republic.
