Katu-Yaryk Pass, one of the most difficult and dangerous passes in the Altai Mountains, is located on the territory of the Ulagan district of the Altai Republic.

Until 1989, there was no road descending from the Ulagan Plateau into the valley of the Chulyshman River. Residents of the surrounding villages used a steep horse trail or a waterway through Lake Teletskoye. Katu-Yaryk Pass on Google Maps. Photos by: Alexandr Lipilin.

Top 4 Places to See in Russia

Russia is the largest country in the world and one that everyone should visit at least once, even though that wouldn’t be enough to truly explore and experience it. It’s a country of great natural, historical, and cultural beauty and diversity.

It has something to offer to any kind of tourist and if you want to immerse yourself in that diversity you’ll do best to travel in your own vehicle and give each site that time and attention that it deserves.

In order to do so legally, you’ll have to obtain an international driving license. Together with your national license and a passport, you’ll be able to rent a vehicle and drive freely for up to six months without having to obtain any other document.
