Excursions
 
Two thematic excursions to Altai for 4 days each will be organized during the period of July 25-July 28. Each bus excursion will cover about 400 km. During the excursion guests will be offered accommodation in comfortable cottages.
 
Altai is the object of world natural heritage “Altai – Golden Mountains.” It is the second in boreal latitudes center of biological and ethnic-cultural diversity. The Altai region draws an ever-growing attention of the largest international projects and WWF and INDP programs, devoted to biodiversity and sustainable regional development problems. The region is in the very center of Asia in the area of interaction of four largest states: Russia, China, Kazakhstan and Mongolia. Three floristic provinces close up here defining unique biological diversity of the region. Here we see the sources of the largest Siberian rivers Ob’ and Irtysh rendering a conducting effect on the environment of the vast region. Altai is the place of interaction of several ethnic cultures (indigenous Altai people, Russians, Ukrainians and other) and a number of religions (pagan shamanism, Tibetian Buddhism, Old believers-kerzhaks, members of Orthodox church of modern orientation)
 
Excursion routes:
 
 
1. Teletsk lake
 
During the excursion the participants will be able to get acquainted with the capital of the Altai Republic -the city of  Gorno-Altaisk , an oldest Siberian road and the future Siberian-Chinese bridge- Tchuisk high road, “Altai pearl” – Teletsk Lake, and  the Biya and Tchulyshman rivers.
The scientific theme of the excursion assumes a discussion of problems of protected territories, preservation of habitat of minor peoples, their spiritual and cultural traditions, development of recreation and transport networks, disturbance  and contamination of natural landscapes, forest felling and poaching as well as the choice of the strategy of the region development and  near-the-frontier cooperation.
 
 
2.   Aktru glaciers
 
The main objects of the excursion are Tchuisk high road, Seminsk pass, the Ursul river valley, the Katun’ river valley, Kuraisk steppe, the most ancient archeological monument - a stone statue on the Tchya river bank, Aktru glaciers, Tchuisk basin - the largest intra-mountain basin of Altai, Kosh-Agatch settlement - an important commercial point of the south of mountainous Altai, alpine cryo-arid landscapes.
The sphere of scientific interests: Altai glaciers, Quaternary mountain glaciations, moraines, glacier lakes, alpine forms of the relief, altitudinal belts and climatic differences of the western and eastern macro -slopes, alpine    steppe phenomenon, protection of natural and archeological monuments, development of transport networks, recreation and mountain ski resorts, preservation of culture of minor peoples.
 
The cost of excursions (including transport, accommodation, meals, excursion service and reference materials) is $ 400.
