  • Amazing place filled with strong energy. The Park has received its name thanks to the Sacred Mount of UCH-Ènmek. Translated from the Altai "UCH" means "three", and "ènmek"-mountain peak: Student-Ènmek has three peaks, the highest of which reaches a height of 2821 m Mountain is considered sacred and it should not be not only rise, but even closer ... Arriving by car, we carried out horse riding. We received this reception "Altai" with refreshments, povâzyvaniem scarves and execution of national music. We touched the stone stellam, stood the ancient burial mounds and admired the sacred peaks of UCH-Ènmek. Unfortunately, we had only a few hours, but it will serve as a good stimulus to come here more than once.

  • Our friends who've been to this park before, persuaded us on this journey, which, according to them, will be unforgettable. And not cheated, which is typical. About 30 km from Karakol is cordon, from which many start horse and hiking trails to the most beautiful places of the Altai. We passed the shortest of them, just for a few hours, but even he is worth it. We went to the Warren Lake. Unfortunately, I do not now remember the title, while our guide Učural, called him. It is located at an altitude of 1470 m, 3 km from the cordon. Vehicular traffic is forbidden there already, so you have to go on foot or on horseback. We have the kids rode on horseback, and adults walked. The last kilometre is quite a steep climb up the Hill and it was not easy, but then ... Surrounded by mountains glitters in the Sun its transparent expanse. Steep shore, swimming is possible, but difficult. The Explorer told them that once the Lake was a holy place and walked only local shamans that would hold their ceremonies. Now shamans have gone deeper and tourists allowed to visit there. The lake itself is forbidden to Kindle fires and put up tents, but just for this area. Water and energy are simply magical. By the end of the ascent I thought fall and I won't be able to stand and reflect fully all forces returned the bathing, so they are quite enough for the return trip. As it turns out, but it crashed out of the abundance of vpečatelnij, this is the place where in Altai should definitely get caught.

  • Altay-based rest resort. To reserve got a quad bike. Nature as in a fairy tale. For the very place vote 5 +. If not one but, which smazalo all its charm. Directly to the Lake built some awful barracks, cordoned off the territory adjacent to the Lake and expelled from the territory under the pretext that it is private property, and ousted the most boorish way, into which can be discharged only tourists from the company Altay voyage. While based on the even of tea for money for other tourists do not pour, not to mention the food. With this power, as told by our guide, that can be reached only on the way obbegav back all the bushes. Campsite belongs to LLC "Olympus". I struck the fact that supervisors do not look for such a disgrace. This same reserve and about some of the activities of private companies may be involved in this territory in three yards from the Lake, the more so with such unobtrusive service. So the Board: food, water, tea, all carry. And the place itself is worth it to visit it. Post pictures of this place and this so called base, which actually made the property a public asset. Enjoy the photos, but not a step at the base. Otherwise the whole buzz from the contemplation of ruining the unobtrusive service and rudeness.
