Personal guide to Altai, Khakassia, Tyva.


My name is Leonid. Altai kizhi (aborigine) from seok (clan, tribe) Mundus. A historian by education, and a guide by vocation. In the Altai Mountains from birth. He graduated from the Gorno-Altai State University with a degree in historian-teacher. For many years he worked in the Republic (the Republican station of young tourists) as a teacher of additional education - conducted circle work, worked with children - orienteering and mountain tourism. I am part of my people. Every corner of Altai, it does not matter - Russia, China, Mongolia, Kazakhstan - is unique, it stores precious evidence from different eras, and is magnificent in its own way. I will introduce you to Altai. I will show and tell you how real locals lived and live, and will take you to places where you can’t get to using a simple guide. I speak English, but so far at the level of a novice user.
