Siberia vol.22 by Othbaal Siberia vol.22 by Othbaal
Location: Republic of Altai, Siberia (RU)
Date: August 2006

I proudly present the true aspects of beautiful Siberia serie.

Akkem valley. Hi-tech meteorology station :) outstanding place !

In the background you can see the highest peak of Altai — Mount Belukha (4,506 m) — is also the highest point in Siberia.

"...The Altay Mountains (alternative spelling Altai) is a mountain range in central Asia, where Russia, China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan come together, and where the great rivers Irtysh, Ob and Yenisei have their sources. Altay Mountains are known as Turks' homeland. The northwest end of the range is at 52° N and between 84° and 90° E (where it merges with the Sayan Mountains to the east), and extends southeast from there to about 45° N 99° E, where it gradually becomes lower and merges into the high plateaux of the Gobi Desert.

The name, in Turkic Alytau or Altay, means Al (gold), tau (mount); in Mongolian Altain-ula, the "Mountains of Gold". The range is also known as the Ek-tagh, Mongolian Altai, Great Altai and Southern Altai..."
