Rhododendron Ledebourii (rus. Maralnik) in spring time at Altay Mountains in full bloom.
Siberia (Altay, southern Sayans) and Mongolia. On rocky slopes, in clearings, along streams in forests and the subalpine zone.
Altay is one of the best destinations in Siberia.
The name Altay (or Altai) comes from Mongolian Altan, which means golden. Altay mountains are truly one of the natures most marvelous gems, amazing by its diversity and beauty.
The Altay ecoregion covers vast 845,000 square kilometer area at the junction of four countries: Russia (largest part), Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China.
Altay is a land where myths and legends are incarnated into reality. Its one of those rare corners on the Earth where Nature decided to show everything it was capable of. Broad and boundless views of steppes, luxuriant varieties of taiga thickets, modest charm of deserts, severe splendor of snowy peaks, laconic beauty of tundra - the diversity of landscapes here is so rich, it is as if you are turning over pages of a geographical atlas
