Shamanic stories and the best freeride in the country

You'll find miles of winter landscapes in the region. Winter holidays in the republic are famous for speleology and freeride - both are waiting for you. You will be able to climb into the Archaeological Cave, where the remains of an ancient man were found and, who knows, maybe you will also manage to discover something new in this world. Of course, you will also walk along the Ancestral Trail and enjoy a magnificent view of the region. And since there are not many places to eat in the region in winter, there is a trout farm waiting for you to catch fish for dinner. And since the region is famous for freeriding all over Russia, an unforgettable clock is waiting for you on the slopes of the mountains on skis, snowboarding or even on a snowmobile - choose a transport to your liking and a hide with a breeze from the mountain! A walk through the oldest astroobservatory in Siberia awaits you - such a place can not be missed, and at 331 sunny days a year it will play for you bright winter colors. At the end of the route you will have a light hiking trip to the Sun Mountain, with fantastic views of the Yenisei and the nearby mountain ranges of Oglakhty, Suhaniha and Tepsei.
