Skazka Peak, North Cuyskie Belki Range, Altay

View from Abyl-Oyuk Pass in the Main Crest of North Chuyskie Belki.

Mechta Glacier and Skazka Pass are down below at the peak base.

There is a number of peaks in the beautiful Shavla Lakes country which carry enchanted Russian names. Skazka is one of them, meaning Fairy-Tale Peak.
