Join us for this fascinating and remote voyage through the Western Sayan Mountains to the crossroads of ancient civilizations and religions. We'll hike in national parks and nature preserves to experience the diversity of the vast Siberian landscape-from taiga to steppe to desert. We'll enjoy a boat ride on the Yenisey River through breathtaking scenery as we look for ibex, bear, yak, and a variety of migratory birds. We'll also visit ancient Tuva, the junction of historical caravan routes from China, India, and Europe.
