Snowy Kraka

This exotic and fascinating route goes over spurs of the mountain range called Kraka-Tau covered with deep snow and the  flood lands of the Kaga River and the Belaya River. You will surely be impressed by how fast the horses run in their winter playground.  Blizzards playing with all the colors of rainbow, people driving a sled through the powder snow; these scenes change so quickly that it creates a very impressive perception of this part of the world.
