South-Chuyskiy Ridge

The South Chuyskiy Ridge is a remote, unvisited area of the Altai Mountains.

The largest glaciers of Altai — Taldurinsky and Sophia — are located here; snow leopards and manuls, camels and yaks graze live here. We will bypass almost the whole range — from the valley of the river Taldur to the valley of the river Elangash — and rise to the key peaks, including the highest point of the ridge — the peak Irbistu (3967 m).

You only need to be in a sufficiently good physical form to participate in the hike because the route is characterized by the relative technical simplicity of the passes and peaks.
