Many believe that the journey through Altai is something incredibly expensive and requiring effort. But it is not so. If you prepare well, you can arrange a ten-day vacation in Altai for 20-30 thousand rubles. You will say that and to the Alps you can go for such money, but why, if there is no worse in our country? There are two options: take a tour to not steam about transport and overnight, or go on a trip myself. And if you have rights or traveler with rights – consider you in chocolate.

We save on tickets

Prices for airline tickets Download from month to. In the Republic of Altai (the main point for us – Gorno-Altaisk) Summer months are the most rich for tourists. Therefore, we recommend going to the path before or after the season: in April-May or in September.

But tickets Moscow (St. Petersburg) -Gorno-Altaisk can shock their price and cheap flights you have to really catch like a goldfish. And here we helps one lifehak, about which we have already said: Look for tickets to the next city or from it. In this case, Novosibirsk or Barnaul is suitable for us – you can meet 10 thousand. rubles back and back. And already from these cities to Gorno-Altaisk go buses. The price starts from 600 rubles, on the way 8-10 hours. So you can save from 5,000 rubles and make a lot of interesting things on the way.

Economy in transport

In Altai, difficult without a car – there is a chance to skip the most interesting (if you did not go to the tour). Therefore, the rental is well developed for this region. We recommend to take the car, because the buses will not come everywhere everywhere. If desired, the car can be rented right in Novosibirsk, the average price per day in the region of 2,000 rubles. And what is the savings? And in the fact that the trip to the company will reduce the costs. Mathematics Simple: If you take rent a 7th day, this will be 14,000 rubles.

Unlike the Alps, there are no luxurious suites with transparent ceilings and so on. Housing is quite modest and in most cases without amenities: there is no Internet, toilet on the street, instead of a shower – bath, and the heating is answered by a stove and firewood. If you book a house on the territory of the turbase, then there is already a little better, but also close to Spartan style. If you are traveling with friends, then rent a house at all is also a good way of savings, but also single travelers can find a room from 500 rubles per day.
