In Turkic and Mongolian language, the word "Altai" means gold. Thus, the city's name translates as "mountain of gold" that is entirely untrue.

Nature has protected the city from the strong wind, with picturesque mountains and hills, and gave it to the outskirts of the infinite, the magical forest where grow the healing herbs and powerful trees.
