After breakfast - bid farewell to Snow Leopard and taiga.


On the route, the group makes a stop at a Khakassian village where there is a monument Khurtuyakh tas where native women bring their gifts if they wish to have a baby.


The ancient land of Khakassia takes the lead over Siberia and even Russia for the abundance of its archaeological relics. Here right by the road, you can see the rock paintings, every twenty meters - a burial mound or a stone figure, which is still serving as a cult place for the local people.


By afternoon we arrive at the Kyuguk valley (in Khakassian "kyug" means "delight"). Two great mountains chains stand near each other here. The Khakassian people call this valley "delight", and archaeologists have found a lot of monuments of different cultures here. Accommodation in the yurt camp. This time it will be wooden Khakassian yurts.


Take a tour to the nature reserve Kazanovka and get to know about the inheritance of ancient civilizations. We will see rock paintings which are 3000-5000 years old. Archaeologists make copies of these paintings on paper for further studying. In the evening, enjoy traditional Khakassian dinner and folk performance.

The tranquillity of the Khakassian valley is something beyond words. Here all the worries fade away; we relax and feel the energy and power of the Khakassian land. All of a sudden, we realize this world is full of mysteries and we are a part of these mysteries – like the ancestors living here thousands of years ago.


Accommodation at the yurt camp.


Breakfast at the taiga camp, lunch and dinner at the yurt camp.
