Once in 2006 I had an awesome trip to Altai, it is an absolutely astonishing place, yep just for clubbing. Sunvibes is an open air festival which takes place every year since 2002 in Altai mountains. It lasts 3 days and 3 nights under beautiful sky. There are a few things you should take from your home : tent, sleeping bag, and a scoop of energy:)
We started our journey in a big bus (also you can travel there by car, if you have one) around 6pm. The bus was full of young people, laughter, and drinks of course, because it cheaper to bring it with you, rather than buy in on the spot, in short everybody was ready for the party! We arrived at the final destination at 2am. Of course it was dark outside but we had to install our tent, and go to dance!
This tent belongs to my parents. I think they bought it around 20 years ago, , and used just a few times, it seems old-fashioned. But I liked that! It looks very funny and it is natural, breathable material but we had to cover it with polyethylene to prevent it from getting wet.
I can't say exactly amount of people attending this festival, I would say it was about 3000. In spite of that it wasn't overcrowded at all, because you have plenty of space around, and nearest village is quite far from there.
And you dance dance dance all night, during the recovery time you can look at stars, I think I saw whole Galaxy, because it is a virgin place, they are all visible:)
Your awakening starts around 11am and goes very slow, as you feel fatigue after tough night:) As you "worked" hard during the night, at morning you should fill yourself by proper portion like that
We call it "buterbrod" though it is the German word. And then you have a plenty of time to roaming around because the place makes it possible. Have a look what it is about
I forgot to say that it is such a pleasure to warm yourself by sitting or standing beside a bonfire, I adore the crackling of natural wood logs...and easily can spend hours observing that. As you know one can't get bored of watching at water, fire and work of other people:)
After 3 days you don't want to leave this place you want to stay longer, but the festival is over and you should go home and take a shower!:) The nature of Altai will cordially welcome you next year...
