Sheregesh is situated quite far from large cities, that is why it is not very cheap to get there. There are two main ways of getting to Sheregesh, either via Novokuznetsk, or via Novosibirsk. Both cities might be reached by plane and by train, including Transsiberian route.
Getting to Sheregesh via Novosibirsk
By plane or by train to Novosibirsk, then from the Novosibirsk Bus station by bus №695 to Sheregesh. The timetable is available on www.nsk-avtovokzal.ru (Rus). This variant is cheaper, but has a significant disadvantage: Sheregesh is 326 mi (525 km) away from Novosibirsk and it will take from 7 to 9 hours to get there.

Besides, there is a tourist train “Zimnyaya Skazka” (Winter Fairytail) that is available from November to May on route Novosibirsk – Sheregesh – Novosibirsk. It is the only tourist train in the Asian part of Russia. The trip takes 3 nights and 2 days. Two nights will be spent on the train, one – at the station. Two days will be spent in Sheregesh near Medvezhonok Mountain. Green Mountain with skiing, snowboarding and snowtubing trails is situated nearby.
