Photographer's Note

The Panorama "Katunskogo mountain range", is formed from three photoes.
Left to right: declivity of the mountain Yarlu (3370), immediately under him moraine and glacier going from Ak-Kemskoy wall (4100, 3B) before lake; the snow tops: "Delane" (4070), "Beluha" (4506), Array "West Beluha", "Corona Katuni" (4178; under USSR - "20 years October"), declivity "Pica Reriha" (3492).
If you solve to approach to "Beluha" or pass before "Tomskih stop" (3100), that possible two ways: pass on moraine or between moraine and glacier (along the bottom). The Second way more preferred. Does Not follow to go on glacier, even summer remains much closed rifts. With us was a lad, from Belorussia, which was ruined on neck on even place, he went on the centre of the glacier. He повезло, all обошлось successfully.
The march from lake before Tomskih stop and back, has occupied beside us 12 hours (lightly). On "Tomskih stop" possible to spend the night, there is lodge, but take with you burner since дров there no.
Who wants to visit on "Beluha" write me on e-mail.
