Synopsis by Forrest Spencer
The Altai Region is a mountainous area in Russia's infamous Siberian territory. The landscape is filled with dense forests, powerful rivers, expansive plains, villages, steppes, lakes, glaciers and long-running ridges expanding 2000 kilometers. One of the three main rivers of the Altai is the Katun. This video documents a joint Russian-American team whitewater rafting on the Katun River, a frigid, turbulent waterway. The travelogue captures some of the spectacular vistas and sights in the Russian wilderness, as well as the invigorating excitement and challenges in whitewater rafting along the Katun River. Anyone who loves rafting or curious about an untamed Russian countryside will enjoy the escapes on this video.
