Trekking to Belukha mount, Altai. July 2019

"We took a tour of the Altai and it was wonderful. We were a bit unlucky with the weather that's why we were staying in a cabin near Belukha, otherwise it was possible to camp there. The most incredible places were Stone Hut and Seven Lakes Valley. Hope to be back there one day. Olga (Extreme Travels In Russia) was the best guide and organizer. She took care of our every need and made sure we had a unique and exhilarating experience exploring these ancient mountians. I would highly recommend her agency and the Altai tour specifically."

 Altai tour (Belukha mount and Teletskoye lake), July 2020

"I have known Olga since when she was our guide during the trek around Manaslu mountain in Nepal (then she worked for BASK-tour, a Russian producer of mountain gear and the biggest adventure tour organiser). So I was happy to know that she is doing Russian tours now independently because during the quarantine we couldn't go abroad this year. I joined a smal group of Altai tour guided by her which was partly a jeep-tour and partly a hiking tour. During the hiking part I loved Kara-Tyurek pass which I did twice - on foot on the way to Belukha and by horse on the way back. Although once I fell from my horse into an icy water of the mountian river I still have the happiest memory of my trip. I also recommend not to neglect the museum of Roerich in Uymon valley. Unfortunately the Ethnography Museum in Gorno-Altaisk was closed due to the quarantine so we couldn't see the famous Princess of Ukok from 3000 BC exhibitted there - I need to go back there!"
