We offer you a two-day itinerary in the heart of the taiga. The flora is even more diverse than the animal world. Our tourists are accompanied by armed rangers and guides (the weapon is used only in rare cases, to scare away the animals). However, as a rule, animals are very careful and can hear you long before you notice them.
Location: Floodplain of the river Black Uba, Rough Taiga, Mixed forest
7:00 Departure from Oskemen
9:30 Arrival to Ridder, getting on off-road transport (UAZ)
11:00 Arrival to the settlement is the starting point of our journey
11:00 – 12:00 Hot homemade lunch
12:00 Going on the route which runs from the settlement up to the floodplain of the river Black Uba to Latchiha tract
Together with our guide, we will walk 16 km on the country road. We are going to hear exciting stories about the most common types of plants and animals of our forests we will meet along the way.
When we find ourselves on the banks of the turbulent river, we will cross it to wade. After that, we will have a rest by the log fire with fragrant tea and fresh cookies.
Now, our adventure should go on. Once again, there is a river across the road! At this time, we will get to the other bank in the “cradle” (see photos).
19:00 Tired but very excited, we will get to the homestead Latchiha and settle in the real taiga hut
19:30 Hot homemade dinner which has been cooked taking into account all your wishes
Facilities and the starry sky spread broadly over your head are outside
8:30 It is time to go back now. At this time, we will choose another path. It will be longer than yesterday’s 2 km, but today we will see a lot of new and interesting things.
12:00 Rest. Lunch by the campfire. There is nothing more delicious than smoked soup.
16:00 Arrival at the settlement. Before we leave, we need to eat some snacks which will give us some strength for the road back home
17:00 Departure to Oskemen
As an option, tourists could stay overnight in the settlement. In the evening, you can go to Russian banya. It is hard to imagine a good holiday without going to sauna! Healing steam and cool mountain air do just the job. These all will make you feel like you are born again. After banya, you can enjoy your country dinner and sweet dream. In the morning, feeling strong and refreshed, you can go back to the town.
Please don`t forget to pack warm clothes, spare shoes and mosquito repellent.
