The mystical land in the heart of Asia explored in RTD’s Altay documentaries

Nestled between Mongolia and Kazakhstan, Russia’s Altay Republic is in the centre of Asia. Despite being the least-populous Russian republic, the traditions of the indigenous Altay people are kept alive. The stunning mountains have over the centuries been home to hermits and shamans, practicing a religion that involves the spiritual energy from the land, sky and water. It’s a land where local and visitor alike get in tune with nature and revitalise their lives in the region’s natural beauty.
