The Altai Airport (LTI / ZMAT) has one unpaved runway and is served by regular flights to Arvaikheer and Ulan Bator.
Altai has a typical Mongolian cold semi-arid climate (Köppen BSk) with subarctic influences, although the climate is so dry as to qualify as semi-arid despite the annual mean being sufficient for sporadic permafrost. The climate experiences long, very dry and very cold winters with short, mild summers when the majority of the scant precipitation occurs.
