Getting There & Away

Ust-Kamenogorsk is the gateway to Altay. In Altay there is little public transport, though there are frequent marshrutkas from Ust-Kamenogorsk to Ridder, and infrequent ones from Ridder to the village of Poperechnoe. The village of Urunkhaika on the shores of Lake Markakol is a seven-hour drive from Ust-Kamenogorsk along a fairly decent road; the most direct route requires a ferry crossing.
