"The Altai is one of the few..." Russia Favorite Tip by olessair

Russia General: 192 reviews and 175 photos


Favorite thing: The Altai is one of the few places where all levels of different types of active tourism are available.
White-water rafting? The river Catun? is not called ?the cradle of water tourism? for nothing. Once, at a time when wooden rafts were used, the river was considered to be difficult and defined the required skills of a true rafter. Nowadays, due to the new means of rafting, there is no need to be a professional to overcome a storm of the Catun? rapids.
