Ural mountains

Tourism in Russia > Ural mountains

Ural mountains

The nature of the region is various and marvellous. Picturesque sceneries, mountain and forest landscapes, mysterious caves make unforgettable impressions. The river cruises let you enjoy all the beauty of the wild nature staying in comfort: from the board of oil-ship, yacht or sailing catamaran. It doesn’t matter what kind of transportation is chosen - whether sailing or walking, bicycling or riding, skiing or sledging, or using snowmobile - the acquaintance with the nature of Ural and Western Siberia will leave nobody indifferent.

There are numerous delightful lakes at the eastern foothills of the Urals. The Turgoyak lake is called « the younger brother» of Baikal; its water is as pure and transparent as in Baikal, and even twenty meters deep bottom is seen.

The Urals represent a sui generis border between two continents. The East and the West, being closely inosculated, established a unique region, spreading out on the expanses of Ural and Western Siberia.

The Ural mountains are more than 250 million years old. Some scientists even consider them to be a birthplace of the ancient human civilization because some of the findings discovered here have more than 14 thousand years of age!

Here there are relict fur-trees, emerald cedars and high pinetrees used for shipbuilding. Taiga woods and pine forests are the pride of the region. The pine-trees, which trunk is almost 1,5 m in diameter, grow here.
