Altai Mountains is the highest of three major mountain ranges in Mongolia, straddling the Russian and Chinese frontiers in the Far West. Mountains of eternal snowcapped mountains and glaciers. In these remote regions live many nomads of ethnic minorities.
The Kazakhs are Muslims, and speak an ancient Kazakh language, as well as Tuvan, who are Buddhist and shamanistic. This dramatic journey will bring us to Mongolia’s highest mountain region. We will trek to the Potanin glacier supported by pack camels and locals. Local Kazakh herdsmen will keep their priced Golden Eagles next to their yurts.
