Welcome to Lake Teletskoe & Artybash
Deep, delightful Lake Teletskoe is Altai’s serene answer to Lake Baikal, a great place simply to relax and catch your breath. It’s also Altai’s largest lake. Ridge after forested ridge unfolds as you scuttle along on one of the myriad little pleasure boats that buzz out of Artybash village, the lake’s charming tourist hub.
Lake Teletskoe drains into the Biya River at its westernmost nose. Artybash is on the right (north) bank, connected by bridge to little Iogach village, the main population centre and bus stop, on the left bank.
