Before a long walk through the mountains is worth a refreshment, this will help you a wonderful Italian restaurant in the heart of Biysk.

The Rock Four Brothers

The Four Brothers Rock is a true geological monument. It has an original shape, which resembles four men standing side by side, shoulder to shoulder. The rock reaches a height of 10 meters. You can walk to it along a small narrow path, and if you decide to continue on your way, you can go to another attraction - the cliffs of the "Gates of Love".


To get to the Church mountain and see the beauty of the Altai region from above, you will need to use a cable car. More information about the mode of operation and lifting costs can be found [on this site]( Please note that the cable car service is available from Tuesday to Sunday.

Church Mountain

It is on Mount Church that you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the spa and the ridges of the mountains on the Cheginsky Ridge. On the observation deck, where the cable car leads you, you can have a delicious lunch at a table overlooking the mountains, and on a wide path you can walk to the rock of the same name. The Rock "Church" was formed as a result of centuries of weathering. It got its name because of its shape, which is very similar to the temple dome.
