This mountain is called Belukha, Triokhglavaya, Istok Katuni. It is full of extremely picturesque Alp landscapes with mountain walls and deep valleys that always surprise all the travellers at these wonderful places. Our route crosses all the important sites from Ust-Koksa to Belukha base, through the lake Kucherla, along the Kucherla river and back along the Ak Kem river. The great Russian artist Nicolas Roerich dedicated his paintings to the beauty of Altai Krai.
