Summer dream come true ! We're going to the Altai Mountains on Karagemsky breakthrough ( confluence Argut and Caragh ) . Our trip was organized by a tour company " White Stone ", which is well aware of the geography of this region and always organizes all our travels .

 

The road from Novokuznetsk to the place took 2 days. Charms Chui tract will not describe . Now , perhaps, no person who is not been to the Altai Mountains . At the end of the second day we SUVs, overcoming all border checkpoints , arrived in the settlement Dzhazator ( Tat ) . Representative firms in the village acquired the necessary license to hunt goats (another dream of our men) , and spent the night in tents outside the village (by the way , again Respect " White Stone " by organizing our tent life ) , advanced to the travel destination . Road , I would say not for the faint of heart : a very narrow ( if the " oncoming " , only to bounce , that disperse ) , sometimes very steep.

Here it is - Karagemsky mess .... Not very spravedlivone name : Argut to Carague breaks and is not called Argutsky and Karagemsky ...

But otherwise , a must see ... Just porridge of water and rocks . And there is a "sick" people wishing to volunteer there to raft ! And because we know them ! ! Doubly sight to !

Karagemsky breakthrough is a chaotic combination of high waterfalls , giant rocks and powerful " boilers" .

The theoretical possibility of passing Karagemskogo breakthrough came after the invention in 1989 of a special alloyed means "bagel" .

First attempt at passing the Alexander carried Provatorov and Anatoly Shulzhik May 9, 1990 . Originally they had planned to pass the first portion Karagemskogo breakthrough and moored front of the waterfall , but rubbed control of the situation and went to the waterfall . Below the falls bagel stuck in the rocks , and rafters had to pull out of the threshold using the induced crossing and climbing harnesses . However, despite the accident , Alexander Provatorov and Anatoly Shulzhik decided to continue alloy. Obnesya along the coast most dangerous of 500 meters , rafters again took to the water and passed the threshold to the end. During passage Karagemskogo breakthrough bagel went in unmanaged mode , falling from the high threshold and spinning in all planes . Alexander Provatorov and Anatoly Shulzhik lost consciousness and passed in such a threshold. However, preserved only as an emergency Chalky , so passing the threshold would not believe .

But after a few years, the guys have repeated the feat that was completely fixed ...

 

P.S. To the delight of women present , goats shot , although there are very many. We just admired for their herds of binoculars !

Great Escape! A sea of emotions !
