“By and large we liked it here – the rooms are clean, with good sound insulation. Friendly receptionist and staff, we checked in an hour early by prior arrangement. The interior of the room is quite nice. One minus – there is no refrigerator. In order to go to breakfast, I had to fully dress (the café is located in a separate building, there is no food delivery). Another point for those who choose this place to stop – there are no shops nearby, and there is no drinking regime, so buy water in advance” Dmitry, Russia

The results of the tests remained unknown to the general public, but local entrepreneurs did not leave this case without attention. So the resort has an entertainment complex dedicated to the Sheregesh yesti.

Three times a day in the Snow House entertainment programs are held (children under 5 years old and their parents take part for free). Educators are engaged with the children. Together they make amulets, draw, participate in master classes on the production of handicrafts. The game program is conducted by the Eveni himself, and cheerful animators help him.

Frozen minerals create a special atmosphere of mystery.
