Our Source & Process
Source & Process Of Mountainlife Shilajit
We source our Shilajit from a very remote part of the Altai Mountains in Siberia close to the Mongolian border. This area has been historically known as the "Golden Mountain" which comprises of a collection of valleys and peaks. The environment in the Altai region of Russia is completely untouched and pristine, and absolutely free from pollutants and air bound chemicals.
During the summer months in the Altai, temperatures can reach up to 40°C which heats up the mountain rock. This heat slowly transfers in to the rocks which allows the Shilajit to become more viscous. Once it becomes a sticky tar it can be extracted from the cracks within the rock. This is a dangerous task and the local people of the area have expert skill in the mountains and the nature that inhabits its valleys.
