  • Ostanavlivlivalis' resting on the base of "student jenmek". I liked the rooms, small but cosy and clean, conveniently made kitchen and dining area. Friendly admin, all showed, told how where to get. Morning issued ticket (without it, you cannot go abroad). Reached the Cordon (way twice asked the way, local were neobshhitel'nymi), registered, left the car and walked to the Lake. Enjoyed nature, Lake of great beauty!

  • Amazing place filled with strong energy. The Park has received its name thanks to the Sacred Mount of UCH-Jenmek. Translated from the Altai "UCH" means "three", and "jenmek"-mountain peak: Student-Jenmek 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, povjazyvaniem scarves and execution of national music. We touched the stone stellam, stood the ancient burial mounds and admired the sacred peaks of UCH-Jenmek. Unfortunately, we had only a few hours, but it will serve as a good stimulus to come here more than once.
