Stolby National Park, Krasnoyarsk

(4.9/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Hike into Stolby National Park to view the giant rock formations, the result of pulsating magma forced up millions of years ago from deep below the earth's surface. The formations of the Eastern Sayan Mountains are called Stolby, Russian for "pillars," and this is what they resemble. Visit the small fortress at the junction of the Kacha and Yenisei Rivers, built by Russian kozaks who discovered the geological wonders in 1624. You can hire a guide to ensure you see all of the pillars during your visit.

  • Was with the tour, so our vehicle missed a right to the main entrance. Tourists usually go walk a few kilometers from the city. Posts are beautiful at any time of the year. due to winter ticks preferred, but summer nature richer) dress up in winter need in comfortable shoes for walking in deep snow (you can fall through if get off trail). Walking causes delight: fresh air, nature and all sorts of animals) after walking you can eat in the cafeteria, buy souvenirs in the shops. Better to go early in the morning to people was not enough.

  • Lovers of long walks, camping on the "Posts" will seem exciting adventure and fun and useful physical activity. The surrounding nature will impress beauty and grandeur, and don't forget to bring seeds or nuts to please the inhabitants of the reserve and observe them in their Habitat Wednesday. Of particular delight will experience, having risen to the top and starting endless expanses of beautiful taiga. The hike will take several hours, depending on how fast you will go, if you get tired, there is the opportunity to sit on the bench or drink tea on the way to posts in specially equipped places.

  • A place where visiting once, begins to cry, enticing and attract to itself the uniqueness of the landscape, the feeling of wilderness nature and understanding how small and helpless man before nature. Indescribable joy and great regret that man has no wings comes when the height of what some of the posts hast regarded the endless expanses of the Sayan Spurs. Especially beautiful in autumn, when the yellow foliage on trees. Other winter delights and other sensations.
