But the most important goal of Toursmoto's trips is to show you wonders of nature: rivers of Katun, Chulishman, and Bija, breathtaking waterfall of Korbu, Mushroom Rocks, mountain pass of Katu-Jarik, and the pearl of the Altai - Lake Teletskoye. Much of the coast and its vicinity aren’t subjected to the influence of civilization and remained the same as they were thousands of years ago.
The shores of the lake are mountains covered with dense forest and steep cliffs with century-old cedars. The purest mountain water rarely warms above 10 degrees Celsius, that is why it is almost impossible to swim there. But the view is amazing. Lake Teletskoye, like a magnet, attracts people due to its unique beauty, mystique, incomprehensibility, and elegance.
This tour includes four-hour ship trip to the opposite side of the incredible Lake Teletskoye. Mountain pass of Katu-Jarik is a man-made sight that was constructed not so long ago in 1989. It is unique in that no classic characteristic passes of symmetry: the serpentine rise of the serpentine descent.
The pass is a descent from the Ulagan plateau in the valley of the river Chulyshman. This 3,5 kilometer-long zigzag of nine loops cut in the 70-degrees slope of the mountain. Visitors can disperse from oncoming cars only on the corners (there are small pockets). When people visit this place the heart starts beating faster and the breathing quickens.
Car goes downhill to the right and to the left at the highest point of the pass is an observation deck, offering stunning views: the bottom of a narrow green ribbon winds Chulyshman, on the opposite side of the gorge - Chulyshman plateau terminating in steep rocky valley walls, approximately one kilometer-high, which flow down nearly 100-foot waterfall.
The food is regular (meat and fish). However, Toursmoto can provide vegetarian food on request.
