It is known as the "four countries".
Altay has azure blue lakes, dense birch forests, wild Gobi deserts, colorful river valleys, and ancient Mongolian Tuva people... In the hearts of many people, Altay is often connected with Kanas. Kanas is Mongolian, meaning "beautiful, rich and mysterious." Kanas Lake was formed 200,000 years ago. Moraine objects blocked the river course, forming a magical and spectacular mountain lake.
Kanas Lake and the surrounding snow-capped mountains, grasslands, and birch forests form beautiful scenery. Shenxian Bay, Wolong Bay, and Moon Bay are well-known and are photographers' paradise all year round. There is a quaint little village by the lake—Hemu Village. The warm air and quiet atmosphere here make people feel as if they are in a private manor, which is quiet and beautiful from any angle.
Hemu Village is inhabited by Kazakhs and Tuvas. They are mainly nomads and hunters. They eat homemade cheese, milk tea, and milk bumps. They live in a wooden yurt built by themselves, and live quietly and leisurely with the sheep from the south to the north. Life.
Baihaba Village is located in the deep valleys of the Altai Mountains, surrounded by dense forests. It is the village with the highest concentration of Tuva people in the Altay region. One of the small towns. This is a village where the natural ecology and the ancient traditional culture are in harmony, everything still preserves the original style inherent for hundreds of years. The Tuva dwellings were built on a long and narrow terrace between two small streams. Wooden house fences made of logs stand against the mountains and rivers, scattered in pine and birch forests. When you arrive at Bai Haba, you must take pictures of the smoke that rises in the morning. The virgin forest, log cabins, the faint morning mist and the mysterious residents together form a fairy tale kingdom.
