Why Altai?

— - Let's start with our first trip together to United Arab Emirates in 1998, that's where we started learning the blessings of Civilization. Than there were wonderful Alps of Czech Republic, Germany and France. The Pyrenees of Spain and unimaginable edge of Continent - Portugal, Lagos, Atlantic Ocean! Crimea - severe and soft at the same time - fantastic mountains and infinite Black sea. Incredible India - incomprehensible Delhi, Tadzh Mahal, the Pink City and our super guide-driver Deu, Goa and tasty Nepal food, Bodgaja and the Tibetan medicine. Small but beautiful Sikkim, Gantok, Konchandzonga (86,), because of a snowfall we missed a trip to the high-mountain lake, but had a great bonus - visit to Karmapa's house. To our surprise, he never heard of Altai, we have corrected a situation and have presented to Him a two-temperature stone from Katun river. Than high-mountain lake in the north of China - shaking Tien Shan! Our recent trip - Vietnam - Halong - the Miracle of the world! Hue, Hoj An, Na Trang, legendary Saigon and, of course, capital Hanoi where we have met Shawn - our the Third for all this unforgettable trip. Our Vietnam has ended with Delta of Mekong, and Cambodia has begun. Contrast Pnom-Penh and amazing Angkor! Inexpressibly, just "must see" place! And full shanty on the Koh Pangan Island at the southwest of the Gulf of Siam, Thailand. Almost all our trips are taken at the winter, the Summer is all for Altai. We've been there many times, but magic of Altai is that it constantly pulls you back. Back to a never-ending energy source where you forget about everything at once, you cease to look at the watch and you look with surprise at something called a car armrest. Altai is the place where you enjoy each breath of the cleanest air and, with improbable pleasure you realize that you are Here and Now+. And, thus, you are engaged in the favorite business of your life - Discovering. And here, you know, a lot of undiscovered things...
