Trekking to Altai. Belukha mountain 2016.

Trip review
Glenn Morris, New Zealand

«Firstly after so many overseas hikes I must say this one was certainly unique and at the top of the enjoyment status.

I am still amazed how nice everyone worked together enjoying their own experience of the wild Siberian wilderness.

I loved sharing the experience with such a huge age, hiking experience, culture, nationality and background diversity. Despite these differences it enhanced our fun together rather than making it an obstacle.

I learned and experienced a new Russian word “banya” that will stay with me for a while. I now know five Russian words!

The food was well chosen for providing the energy needed to zoom up the hills and send us off to sleep at night. When I compare it with the menus on many other trips I can see it was chosen by hikers for hikers.

I did admire the cheerful banter along the way listening and participating with interest when possible to fun conversations that always seems to pop up. »
