Description
Going by the Upper Katun river, ascending alpine meadows of the Ak-Kem - Argut watershed by the wise Altai horses, we reach the Ak-kem lake - a mirror of mystical Belukha mountain.
TREKKING & RAFTING CONDITIONS
The route is not difficult and doesn’t require any special skills. But horse riding experience is obligatory for you to feel more comfortable when riding for several hours. Hiking and trekking experience is a great advantage. There will be horsemen-supervisors to help. On some steep ascents or descents it might be necessary to dismount the horse. We travel in a remote and unpopulated area, and there are no conveniences. The weather in mountains changes spontaneously. There may be precipitation. The day temperature is +10+30, temperature at night 0 +10, sometimes -5. The route for rafting isn’t difficult, of I-II rate. The guide has the right to change the program because of the weather and the other unfavourable circumstances.
