Fishing in Siberia, Kuznetskiy Alatau

Region: Russia, Southern Siberia, Kuznetskiy Alatau range
Activity: teahouse trekking, flyfishing
Trip Category: special
Difficulty: easy to medium, no need of special skill (kids from 9 years old are allowed).
Dates: May-October

     Kuznetskiy Alatau - "The Blacksmith's Mountains" is the medium-altitudes mountain land on the south of Siberia, slightly to the North from Altai, which keeps untouched wild nature so far. The area is practically unpopulated, so unique mountain taiga consists from firs, silver firs (pihta) and Siberian stone pines keeps it's virgin purity. Due to absent of industrial infrastructure, the ecological situation is perfect. The highest point of the entire area is Verhniy Zub ("Upper Toth") mount, 2178 m. There are no serious obstacles like snow and ice-covered passes en routes, trails lay in taiga or in some higher parts on tundra flats. The unique feature of the area is - despite of lower to medium altitudes- the presense of 80+ glaciers! So you can try real alpine landscape without any risk of AMS! The area has a very wide net of mountain rivers and small lakes with crystal clear water (no dregs which is important for fishing!), inhabited by a lot of species, including grayling, taimen (Siberian Salmon, Salmo Taimen), pile, perch and many others.

    Another key features are the well-developed network of mountain huts (priut) and easy to get there/away (the 1st huts are on the railroad just across the Tom river), so teahouse-style hiking - similar to Nepal or other tourist's areas is possible!

    We offer 3basic itineraries- the 1st is easy-grade and is perfect for flyfishing, 2 river basins are covered. The 2nd is a bit more adventure and includes far remote part of Belsuu river which is considered as a most perfect fishing goal. The 3d is real adventure an combines flyfishing with lake fishing in remote Golden Valley. If you have more time, you can combine all trips in one to cover the entire area. Shorter or any other personalised trips are possible as well - just us!
