Altai Mountains, Russian Altay, is complex mountain system of Central Asia extending approximately 1,200 miles in a southeast-northwest direction from the Gobi Desert to the West Siberian Plain. Altai is one of the most amazing travel destinations in Russia: wild, extraordinarily beautiful and remote.
Here we will get acquainted with the unique culture of Altai, Kaichi, and the culture of endangered peoples: Tubalars, Chelkans, Kumandins (if you have Russian QR code, we may also visit National Museum in Gorno - Altaisk)
The museum presents the biography and work of the famous Altai storyteller Nikolai Ulagashevich Ulagashev. He was one of the most ancient Altai storytellers, an outstanding guardian of the centuries-old heritage of oral folk art of the Altai peoples.
In addition to the life and work of the eminent Altai storyteller-order bearer, many materials are presented that reflect the life and work of the indigenous peoples of Altai. There is no better way to understand Altai than to learn about heroic tales.
Three-headed ail features an exposition of Altai culture, a workshop of folk crafts and a large ail which serves as a place for various cultural events.
