First glance at Belukha from Ioldo-Ayry Glacier
As we recross the main crest of Katun'skie Belki Range from the Kazakhstani side, the distant summit of the Top of Siberia comes into view for the first time.

Ioldo-Ayry I pass. Day 8 of our March 1988 Altay mountains ski backpack.

you liked, doesn't it? Actually, if I had a choice between the two, I'd opt for the Altay as I find it hard to live without the forest - towards the end of my 3-month stay in Spitsbergen I missed the sight of a tree so much:-)

Shield glacier stuff? Well if you go to Eastern or Southern Altay, there may be no trees either. Just desert and ice!
