May turns Altai into blooming pink and violet marvel. It is "maralnik", flower known as Siberian Sakura, and it is everywhere south from Chemal. The Katun River is Altai's iconic hotspot. Translated from Altai language, Katun is the mistress (kadyn). Katun flows from south to north almost throughout entire Altai, and where it did not find a way good way through, numerous rapids provides endless opportunities for rafting of any level including the white rafting. Katun is born from the waters of the Katun Glacier (Gebler Glacier) on the southern slope of Mount Belukha, in Kazakhstan, flows along the Altai Mountain and to the Altai. Not far from Biysk, Katun meets with the other main river of Altai - Biya, forming the great Siberian river, Ob. Swimming in the reservoir, the Siberians embrace the mysterious energy of sacred Mount Belukha.
