AIRVŪZ STAFF NOTE :
Several-time Drone Video of the Week Finalist Makhorov brings us this stunning drone video from Russia's Altai Mountains, home of some of the world's most remote and beautiful scenery. The range, which runs through southern Siberia and also covers portions of China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan, has peaks as high as 4.5k meters above sea level (14.8k ft.). Sparsely populated and studded with a number of giant lakes, the Altai's are famously difficult to access (particularly from within Russia) due to a lack of passes.
This year summer has come a month earlier and I am already looking forward to break free to Altai. When i was editing this video in the stuffy city, i couldn't bear the nostalgia feeling for the reaches of those valleys. I was having an itch to get on a bike and set off somewhere far away again. I was making this videoclip during the trip along with my friends over the Altai ring route including visiting the Aktru valley. This is the best route into the Altai Mountains which takes you all the way through the Chuysky highway till the Katu-Yaryk pass into the valley of the Chulyshman river with the further ferrying over the Teletskoe lake. Arguably this video is all about my favourite spots in Altai All the shots from this video can be purchased in 4K, D-log.
