To the Editors:

Wonderful article and photography in Maria Antonova’s “Tracking the Ghosts of the Mountains.” Sure would have been helpful for a small detailed map of the main highway and lakes.

In the March/April 2017 issue, page 30, I believe the Altai Republic borders Kazakhstan, not Kyrgyzstan, which is somewhat more south. And, the Chuysky Trakt or Chuya Highway may be designated as M52 (Atlas Avtodorog Rossii, 2001, pp. 96-97) or P256 on the internet. Lake Khindiktig-Khoi’ is located in the southern tip of the Respublika Tyva.
