Question: How to visit Altai Mountains?

Together with a friend of mine, I am looking to visit Altai Mountains in June. We plan on flying to Novosibirsk and then travel onwards to Altai Mountains.Is this a good time to visit?

As we are looking to do this on a tight budget, how should we visit? Can we do this ourselves or do we need a tour/guide accompanying us to the trip?

Many thanks,

How confident are you driving? The normal international hire car companies (eg avis etc) are quite good to deal with in Russia and are easily accessible in novosibirsk. The worst part of the journey is getting out of NS. Yandex and maps.me have good coverage of the roads. Will just need to decide on type of car if needing high clearance
