Lower Multa Lake and Middle Multa Lake are the pearls of Katun National Park. Lower Multa Lake is really beautiful, changing its colour depending on the light. Lower and Middle Lakes are connected with the channel Shumy (English: noises) full of stones. When the water passes through the stones it makes a peculiar noise. The culmination of the landscape is the mountains surrounding Upper Multa Lake: the glaciers are reflected in the mirror surface of the lake. If we are to mark Altai trekking tours according to their difficulty, the tour to Multa Lakes will be the first one.
