Mount Belukha Ц the famous place of power at the Altai
James Hilton, a popular British author, wrote about such a magical place back in 1933. His bestselling novel, Lost Horizon, immortalized a mystical, beautiful Utopia in Middle Asia referred to as Shangri-la.
Shangri-la was snugly nestled in a hidden valley beyond the Himalayas, past
the towering points of the icy peaks of the Kun Lun mountain range, and
sheltered a mysterious community of sages. In this exotic Utopia enlightened
masters who possessed the secrets of longevity and incredible mystical and
psychic powers lived, studied, and taught to those with an open mind.
Huc was not the only source for Hilton to obtain information about the secret kingdom. Since the end of the Middle Ages, Catholic missionaries went out on countless missions in efforts to convert the Tibetans and Chinese to Christianity. Every time they arrived back from their journeyТs they would be filled with wondrous stories about this magical, rich place that was somewhere in Middle Asia. They described it as a natural paradise in which all the inhabitants were full of wisdom and justice reigned. There was no suffering and old age like in other parts of the world. It was indeed a place where the spirits from above had brought down favorable blessing upon its very land and people.
This hidden paradise is an idyllic region that embraces peace and beatitude that only come from spiritual practices that are initiated by a great wisdom that has been passed down for centuries.
Travel to Altai, Russia: Mountains and Places of Power
We spent two weeks in the Altai - in this stunning edge-rich nature, only
slightly affected by human activity. We came here the first time and were
certainly fascinated surrounding splendor nature, always felt ourselves in
complete harmony with nature. By the second day here you get balance of mind,
body and soul. Who was in the Altai once always come back here again. Our Altai
is majestic mountain peaks, natural monuments and artifacts of the past,
mountain lakes, pine forests, honey apiaries, mountain valleys and clear air of
forests - they call us back, call us to stay here.
We spend the night in tents again. In the morning we go on foot to Kucherla lake. The length of the lake is more than 5 km, and width is up to 900 meters. There are over forty lakes in the valley of Kucherla , mostly they are tectonically dammed origin. The largest of them is Kucherla lake. The lake is filled with ice water which has a greenish-blue color. We spend the night in the camp by the lake.
The day begins with the transition under the pass Kara Tureck. The camp is placed on the top border of the timber. Then we go up to the mountain pass of Kara-Tureck (category 1A of, 3060 m). A great panoramic view of Mount Belukha and the set of vertices of Katun ridge is from the pass. We reach the lake Ak-kem and spend the night here.
The camp remains in the same place, and now we committed radial exits. We start with a visit to Lake Mountain Spirits (2500 meters above sea level). There are not separate paths to the lake: it is necessary to go across the moraine Akkem glacier Ak-Kem, then go across the bridge and climb up the moraine, which is not easy at all. And then you get to the lake with turquoise-green water, which shines brightly in the sun. The lake is very cold and deep. High on the slopes is a waterfall that feeds the lake. We have a picnic with a view of incredible beauty, then go back to the camp by sunset.
The next day we take another radial access - to the foot of Mount Belukha, the kingdom of ice, ice caves and the famous Ak-Kem wall. Belukha is the highest and most famous mountain of the Altai.
Another day in the camp and we're doing a new way - in the Valley of the Seven Lakes. Hanging Valley Ak Oyuk gained prominence due to the unique cascade of mountain lakes located in the hanging valley at a distance of several hundred meters of each other. Each lake has its own shade of water, and the lakes are different and not like each other. In the Valley of Seven Lakes is Jarl gorge, where the whole city is built of stone, and there are a "stone of strength."
