Peak ICTU is one of the most beautiful peaks of the Altai. This two-horned rock-ice top is crowned by a huge glacier of Altai-Taldurinsky. Altaians explain its name as follows: “Yik-tak shaman shouts, and the word Tuu-means mountain.”
We will visit desert valleys, interesting passes! Yuzhno-Chui ridge is a kind of amazing Altai!
As part of the route, you can pass this event as a pawn, that is, not to climb, but to pass the majestic taiga of the South Chui ridge and contemplate the stunning views of lakes, mountains, forests, Alpine steppes!
The specifics of the program: the ascent of Iiktu is based on the classical principle of tours-ascents: approach to the top followed by acclimatization ascent or acclimatization ring passage of the pass. After this preliminary preparation there is a direct ascent to the top.
With all this, the undoubted specifics of the program are the beautiful views of the Ukok plateau and the dense larch taiga when approaching the base camp. Join us!
