Day 3Climb to Malchin peak

Malchin Peak is located right on the borderline between Russia and Mongolia. It is the only mountain where it is possible to climb up without any special climbing equipment, except hiking boots. But it is not easy, some parts of the trail are very steep with big stones, which makes it difficult to climb up. Also, the weather plays a large role. Our main priority is to be safe. So, our tour guide will lead the group as high as possible depending on how the weather changes. Enjoy the breathtaking view of the surrounding nature. As an alternative option, in case of bad weather, we can offer you the option to explore Potanin Glacier. It is a 16 km long and 4 km wide glacier with a number of deep crevasses. Enjoy your trekking. Back to the base camp

Accommodation: Stay overnight in tent
Meals: Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner

Day 4White-River valley

Today we will trek down to the south entrance. We will take a different trail to arrive at this location. It is one of the most beautiful valleys in the National Park. Enjoy snow-capped mountains and a stunning white river. The color of the water is really white because it comes from the glacier and the mineral dust turns the water white. It is not drinkable. Arrive at the South entrance of the National park. Set our tents at the camping place. In the evening, if you feel up to more hiking we can recommend visiting Green Lake. It takes a couple hours to hike up to and back.

Accommodation: Stay overnight in tent

The nomadic Tuvan people live in these two valleys. They have their own language and practice Shamanism. Today you have the opportunity to visit a nomadic family and explore their way of living.

This is a place of untouched nature which is only possible to enter in the summertime. The valley is home for wild animals like bears, red deers, foxes and wolves. But when it is summer and a lot of travelers visit these valleys, animals stay far from the trails. Enjoy the stunning nature of Altai.

Accommodation: Stay overnight in tent

Day 7Khoton lake

Today we will be trekking for about 4 hours and meet our vehicle at the end of the valley. Be ready to cross several rivers. Say goodbye to the camel herders and switch to the car.
