Lower Yedyghem Valley, Altay Mtns
Yedyghem is the winter range for yaks of the local Telengit herdsmen, its snow evaporated into the dry air of Siberian High Pressure area.

In another few miles, as we ascend into the taiga zone, skiing will begin in earnest.

February 1985 Chuya-to_katun' ski crossing of the ranges of Altay.
