10 Escape From Civilization

Escape From Civilization

Posted on August 27, 2012 by team

Right now we are going to see some photos of the Altai region, its south-west area, to be more precise. That’s exactly the area so hard-to-get-to. We’ll start from Ust-Kamenogorsk not far from the border with Russia. Pure land of mountains and lakes, wild vegetation and impassable roads. Small hills surround fields with blooming buckwheat and sunflowers.

Ridder is a quiet and cosy city. It has always been like that, since the Soviet time. It was founded in 1786 and named after Philip Ridder who opened a deposit of complex ore there.

These roads are for jeep lovers.

The Altai region is very photogenic. It’s rich in complex ore which contains gold, silver, copper, rare metals like cobalt, indium, selenium etc.

    That mushroom in the photo is definitely poisonous. It is one of Amanita kind. So I really doubt naming it “tasty thing” is the right description :)

    To have a country house there with no telephone, no tv, no pc, no Internet.

    Just peace.

      I’m sure that sounds wonderful to you, and sounds like hell to those who live there year round. That’s why they all have satellite dishes in their yards.

    Nice photos. The place is actually eastern Kazakhstan.
