  • A friend of mine, during a trip to the Valley from excess impressions vskliknul-Yes this is just some Space! The day was sunny, the air clear, but around latitude space and Sayan mountains on the horizon. This region of the Republic of Buryatia completely devoid of industry and is a unique, protected natural complex. Several natural areas, Prairies, mountains, foothills tundra, taiga, mineral and thermal springs, radon waters, mountain rivers, Valley springs and the Valley of the volcanoes, resorts. Nobody has not spared that visited here. ;-)
