Argydzhek in Winter

Long lasting winter is coming…  We offer you to conquer the gates of Eastern Sayan – the mount of Argydzhek 152 meters high. It is situated in the Mansky district of the Krasnoyarsk Territory near Zhaima village, about 200 km from Krasnoyarsk.

It is a real fairy tale here in winter: spruces are covered with fluffy snow, as if Morozko has passed by, while in summer the mountain blossoms with bright colours. Argydzhek is well known among freeride amateurs: skiers and snowboarders put the equipment on their backs, walk up to the top and slide down with the wind.

It is comfortable to get to Argydzhek by car. In winter the one-way trip will take about 2,5 hours.  You do not need to get to the village of Zhayma – it’s better to leave the car near the downhill – there the route begins.  Use maps for orienteering: the route can be found in off-line maps app “”. You will certainly see the line of cars. Leave yours there too.

You need to walk approximately 6 km to the top.  The climb is not difficult, but on the top there is a loose rock. Take hiking poles, you will certainly need them.  From the mountain you will see the most important – a fascinating panorama of snow-white mountains of the Eastern Sayans! On a clear day, you can see Kuturchinskoye Belogor’ye, Balakhtison and Moskva mount. The panoramic view from Argydzhek is the most boundless, absolutely wild Siberia.
