Hiking on Mount Belukha

Night at a height of 4 meters

Types: Hiking, Mountain, Summer, Climbing, Difficult trekking, Participants with experience, 11-14 days

How to get there By plane or by train to Barnaul, then all together by road to the village of Tyungur. The dates of the planned trips are indicated without a train or plane. Time in Altai +4 hours to Moscow time.

It is recommended to come to Barnaul the day before the start of the trip to the peak of Belukha to distribute public equipment, the last meeting with the benefits of civilization and rest after the road. The Moscow-Barnaul train arrives in the morning, and after two days on the road, getting into transport to Tyungur immediately is tiring. The same is recommended for those traveling by plane. From the railway station in Barnaul to the familiar Tourist Hotel – a 20-minute walk, the rooms are inexpensive (prices on the hotel’s website:)

The deadline for staying in Barnaul is before 8 a.m. local time on the first day of the trip and the upcoming ascent to Belukha. On the final day of the trip, departure / departure from Barnaul can be planned starting from 22 hours.
