If you are over 18, and you are a strong active person and would like to be a mountaineer, a rescuer or a mountain guide, or you just want to get immersed into a harsh but unique and beautiful world of mountains, glaciers and learn how to understand them, you can make your first steps in our center Aktru. The first (and only in Altay) climbing camp was organized in Aktru. It successfully worked from 1952-1970. A lot of famous Russian climbers started their career in climbing camp Aktru, Altay. We always can enroll you into the preparation group and you can take a beginning course and develop your mountaineering skills.
If you are over 30 (40, 50, 60), and have young souls, and you want to experience something new, or you want to challenge yourself in harsh weather conditions and learn not only how to survive in the mountains but also help others… If you want to make new friends and learn how to appreciate simple things and relationships which people do not notice and appreciate in their daily life…
If you want to experience this or even more, but you are not confident and have doubts about yourself (… I am not young, I am going to be behind), if you are not interested in mountain climbing as a sport but you are attracted to mountains and their philosophy, you will always find like-minded people in our center Aktru. We will help you to believe in yourself or regain your confidence. You will see the new horizons, many mountain tops will be accessible to you and you will have opportunity to see unknown sides of human souls and personalities.
If you are over 30 (40,50,60) and you are not interested in mountain climbing or you cannot do it because of health issues, but you love nature and want to get away from everything and just relax far away from civilization; amazing mountain, glacier and cedar scenery of the valley Aktru are waiting for you. Fresh air, clean springs and nature healthy tea made of herbs growing on high mountains, nice walks (tracking routes), hot saunas and nice communication will make you calm and peaceful.
If you are not lucky and could not get your holiday in summer, we can create a pleasant holiday for you all year round. Moreover, we would recommend visiting Aktru in different seasons (summer, autumn, winter, spring) as every season has its own beauty and charm. Those people who got mountain training during offseason and climbed mountains in winter can be considered to pass a serious life exam.
