Explore the Altai Mountains



Combine your studies with a longer trip to the Altai Mountains for a fantastic experience! The name ‘Altai’ comes from the Mongolian word ‘Altan’ which means ‘Golden’. The Altai Mountains really are beautiful. The Altai region covers 845 000 km2 in four different countries – Russia, Kazakhstan, Mongolia and China. Novosibirsk lies approximately 600 km from the mountains: this is nearby in terms of Siberia. The highest peak, Belukha at 4 506 m, rises majestically from its surrounding peaks. The source of the River Ob lies in the Altai Mountains. The Altai Mountains are characterized by a varied landscape, climate and wilderness that is only very sparsely populated by nomads (Mongols and Kazakhs) as well as a lack of any form of industry. The region survives on tourism and farming. This means that the Altai region has been protected from any impacts of industrialization. You can enjoy hiking, rafting, skiing and fishing in this beautiful environment. The Altai Mountains are a natural border between the Mongolian steppe and the Siberian taiga. In the spring the vegetation blossoms and might be lucky enough to catch a glimpse of rare species.

Other: The University organises special trips together with expert ecologists and botanists. We recommend this unique experience. Please contact us for more information if you are interested in taking part in this trip.
