Marcus Oertel and Elena Pagel: Russia Altai
Elena Pagel and Marcus Oertel travelled the Altai for the third time. Via Novosibirsk and Barnaul the trip went directly to the Altai Mountains, also called Russian Tibet, where Kazakhstan, China and Mongolia bordered Russia in summer 2018. An area with millennia-old cultural history, the proud people of the Altai and breathtaking nature, which has to be discovered without a large tourist infrastructure. Over the Tschuiski trakt we drove to the steppe near Kosch-Agatsch and climbed several 3000m peaks there. We continued into the valley of the Katun river and to a yoga seminar at the Telezker lake. Outdoor and self-discovery po-russki – you can see how this works in our talk!
