"Isn?t it curious that the..." Russia Favorite Tip by olessair

Russia General: 192 reviews and 175 photos


Favorite thing: Isn?t it curious that the Altai has the landscapes of almost all the geographical zones of the world? In one trip to the Altai it is possible to see deserted Mongolian steppe, dense Siberian taiga, and the high-mountain glaciers, where during the summer snowfall is higher than during the winter. You can gather a basket of ripe cedar-cones amidst the lofty forests, and half an hour later meet pastured camels on the valley floor!
