"Altai region, at the corner..." Russia Off The Beaten Path Tip by bean

Russia Off The Beaten Path: 91 reviews and 176 photos


Altai region, at the corner point of Kazahkstan, China, Mongolia and Russia. Snow covered mountains (over 4000m) around semi-desert plains, where wild camels wander around. Lenin is still honoured in these remote places.. did he pass away already?
This is a picture in the village of Tashanta, some 20 kilometers from the border with Mongolia.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
