Siberia bears countless secrets, mysteries , religious and geographical locations of artifacts , which together form a unique and special energy here . All surely know that the defining characteristic of religious beliefs was the idea Khakases integrity of the universe. There were no oppositions " man - nature ", they were considered as a single, indivisible whole . The whole world was perceived as a living , populated visible and invisible beings , endowed with their own minds .



There’s almost no opportunity for usual man to meet a real shaman. Soviet authorities back in the 1920s had begun activity to combat "Siberian superstitions". Nearly all ancestral shamans of Khakassia and Tuva were exterminated and their children were ditched in labor camps. As the years passed. In the new capitalist Russia shamanism became a profitable tourist trade. Out of nowhere a lot of the ancient Siberian religion followers appeared. Actually, for prosperity in this business it’s enough to have an initial capital: a relevant national, a costume decorated with feathers, hides and copper rings, the ability to beat the drum, while spectacular dancing and howling in every way. However this “shamanism” is no more than a dramatic performance for the inexperienced traveler.

From April 11 to 13 at the ski resort Sheregesh will host one of the most spectacular events of Siberian Grelka sun & ride music fest in 2014 .

The festival is held for the second year and collects in one place for more than 10 000lyudey united love for downhill skiing and snowboarding , adoring white snow , bright sun and music.

History of Russian Bath

Apostle Andrew wrote in 1113:

"Wondrous to relate, I saw the land of the Slavs, and while I was among them, I noticed their wooden bath-houses. They warm themselves to extreme heat, then undress, and after anointing themselves with tallow, take young reeds and lash their bodies. They actually lash themselves so violently that they barely escape alive. They then drench themselves with cold water, and thus are revived. They think nothing of doing this every day and actually inflict such voluntary torture upon themselves. They make of the act not a mere washing but a veritable torment."

In a trip to Ukok ( Gorny Altai region ) we went to the machines. Better to go to a travel on vehicles intended for off-road , so as not to spoil your holiday .

Summer dream come true ! We're going to the Altai Mountains on Karagemsky breakthrough ( confluence Argut and Caragh ) . Our trip was organized by a tour company " White Stone ", which is well aware of the geography of this region and always organizes all our travels .
