The stunning Altai mountains

Altai, Russia – Photos taken on the way from the valley of seven lakes – wonderful sunset of Altai, Belukha mountain, and a water surface that almost turned into a mirror. Peace and serenity! The Altai Mountains (Altay Mountains) are a mountain range in East-Central Asia, where Russia, China, Mongolia and Kazakhstan come together, and are where the rivers Irtysh and Ob have their headwaters.

How Altai really looks like:

The northwest end of the range is at 52° N and between 84° and 90° E (where it merges with the Sayan Mountains to the east), and extends southeast from there to about 45° N and 99° E, where it gradually becomes lower and merges into the high plateau of the Gobi Desert.
