Krasavitsa Peak (3764m) and Zelinsky Clacier, Altay

Krasavitsa, Russian for Beautiful Maiden, is the highest peak in the Shavla Lakes area of North Chuyskie Belki Range of Altay Mountains. Still a far cry for the numerous 4000'ers further East, but the relative elevation over the deep depression of the lakes makes a stunning sight.
