TUSUR faculty and students took part in a photo expedition having visited Akkemskoye and Kucherlinskoye lakes at the bottom of Belukha Mountain, the highest peak of the Altay Mountains. Seven individuals with various levels of mountain climbing and photographic skills participated in the expedition.
What are its results? Lots of positive emotions, gigabytes of photos and confidence in future victories at world class photo competitions — to name just a few. TUSUR photographers, whose works have already gained international recognition, are glad to share their expertise and professional tips with beginners.
Belukha Mountain, located in the Katun Mountains, is the highest peak of the Altay Mountains in Russia. It is part of the World Heritage Site entitled Golden Mountains of Altai. Belukha is a twin-peaked mountain massif that rises along the border of Russia and Kazakhstan, just north of the point where these two borders meet those of China and Mongolia. There are several small glaciers on the mountain. Of the two peaks, the eastern peak (4,506 m, 14,784 ft.) is higher than the western peak (4,440 m, 14,567 ft.).
