On Earth, there are places with the high potential of energy. The Mountains of Altai are among those unique places, with their wonderful Alpine meadows, crystal-clear rivers and brooks. The centre of attraction for pilgrims, for those who seek the meaning of their own beings, for tourists, philosophers, artists — the Mount Belukha. This is the highest summit of Siberia; it is 80 kilometres South-East from the outskirts of the Uimon Valley, to which we are inviting you.
