PUTORANA PLATEAU

In the north of Krasnoyarsky Krai, inside the Arctic Circle, in the geographical center of Russia there is a pearl of nature - the Putorana Plateau.

Virtually untouched by humans, the waterfall region of Russia, a mountain area which is sizable to Great Britain, fjord lakes and the real northern tundra: stone plateau, deep canyons, a realm of mosses and lichens, abundance of fish. There are no trails, no connection, and almost no people.

Here you can feel like a discoverer, and when meeting the indigenous peoples - enjoy the true hospitality of people of the north.
