Ticket to Siberia Please

Altai Mountains, Siberia, Russia

Altai Mountains, Siberia, Russia

I received this postcard from Anna in Siberia, Russia. The Altai Mountains are situated between Russia, China, Kazakhstan and Mongolia. In what reads like a tourism ad, Anna proudly tells me how beautiful the region is and that apparently the word “Altai” means rich and is derived from the Russian word for gold. She also tells me that this is one of the richest parts of the world but I’m not sure if she’s referring to monetary wealth or bio-diversity. But I’m guessing the money that tourism brings in could lead to it being both. I certainly want to get on a plane right now and check this amazing place out. Thank you Anna for a very informative postcard.
