Stolby National Park, Krasnoyarsk

4.9
#1 of 75 in Wildlife in Russia
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. Plan my Krasnoyarsk trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Came to friends, they drove us to the entrance, and offered intensive walk to Beaver log. The first 7 km away is the climb up the Hill. Further start actually Posts. Visited First (slightly mystical), grandfather, Grandma, granddaughter, feathers, climbed on the lion gate, and then went on a hike for a freebie-10kmetrovaja trail to the Bobrovomu trail. The road had prihvachennymi supplies to Smotrovke with spectacular views. The trail was not so fatiguing as the first 7 km away. Oh and when you come to the chairlift to the top-none with you money. (A) types and the thrill of a trip wonderful!

  • Beautiful and vast expanses of Siberia here. It is a pity that before the pillars on which it is possible to scramble up, did not, since there was no time. This requires at least a day. Nadejusja to come on a bit longer.

Where to stay in Krasnoyarsk

One of the rare true urban centers in Siberia, Krasnoyarsk is a great base for outdoor expeditions and an important stop on the Trans-Siberian route. The Yenisey River flows through the heart of the city, where you'll find many of its best-known hotels, as well as many smaller pensions and bed and breakfasts. You can also find a good selection of accommodations in other areas of the city. The style of lodgings ranges from luxury and designer boutique hotels to accommodations that have changed little since Soviet times. Shoestring travelers have a number of hostels and apartments to choose from.
