After the pass, a hearty lunch, and the transition to the city of Bandit-there are rumors that during the civil war on this mountain was the camp of ataman Solovyov, so it was nicknamed.

Loaches - common in Siberia, the name of the mountain peaks that rise above the timberline, mostly devoid of vegetation and typically have a flattened (plateau-like) shape. On this day, on the way we will overcome three passes, at the top of the third, we will make a camp. We will see Alpine meadows and dwarf trees in the pre-Arctic zone.

Today it will be necessary to walk because where we go, horses just do not rise from the stones. But the pedestrian crossing overshadows the beauty that opens from the top of Khizir Teren. It takes your breath away when you see the vast space of the Siberian mountains, led by the mountain celestial tooth-this is the highest point of the Kuznetsk Alatau.
We go to the lakes. One of them we called MTS, due to the similarity of its shape with the logo of this company, i.e. lake – egg. A good half of the coast is occupied by a glacier, from which small waterfalls can flow until mid-July. The second lake is not far from the first, can be half covered with ice and the water in it is dark turquoise, very beautiful and breathtaking views. Here we have a small snack and return to the camp.
