In the beginning of May, we suggest that you take a five-day hike along the route Inegen-Tungur. It is a very beautiful and quite a simple route. Especially beautiful it is in the first days of May when the mountains are blazing with thousands of rhododendron flowers. The route runs along the banks of the Katun river and on a clear sky day, you can see glaciers of the Katun ridge. This pathway will be especially interesting to fans of photography, every few kilometers of road in front of you opens new panoramic views of the beautiful mountain river. The length of the hiking route is 70 km.
