Taschanta ( Russian Ташанта ) is a mountain village in the Russian part of the Altai , near the border with Mongolia . It lies on a plateau in the headwaters of the Chuja River, a tributary of the Katun , below the Durbet Daba pass ( 2482  m ), and belongs to the Kosch-Agach district .

Tashtanta is the only village in the rural municipality of Tashantinskoje selkoje posselenije and has 550 inhabitants (as of October 14, 2010). The place is of regional importance as a border town and station on the R256 trunk road . This road, also known as Tschujatrakt ( Чуйский тракт / Tschuiski trakt ), coming from Novosibirsk , past Barnaul and Gorno-Altaisk opens up the northern parts of the Russian and Mongolian Altai and follows the route of an old mule track near the pass.

Near the road 8 km northwest of Taschanta old petroglyphs can be seen on a smooth rock wall , which depict the hunt for mountain sheep and ibex.
