At the attractive junction of the Chemal and Katun Rivers, ever-expanding Chemal is heavily touristed in summer but makes a great base for excursions in the surrounding mountains and rivers. It can also be done as a day trip from Gorno-Altaisk, 95km north, or Manzherok. If you want to continue south to Kosh-Agach and the high Altail mountains, you'll first need to backtrack to Ust-Sema on the Chuysky Trakt
