Getting There & Away

Plenty of public and private marshrutky (fixed-route minibuses) ply the route between Gorno-Altaisk and Kosh-Agach (approximately seven hours). A ticket costs just R550, making this one of life's better cheap thrills. Ask your driver for a seat in the front. If you want to stop (and you will want to), you'll have to hire a private car. We recommend hiring a taxi for three or four days in order to get the most out of the area (taxi drivers in Gorno-Altaisk will request at least R5000 a day).
