Taimyr peninsula seems to be heaven for adventurous raftsmen. The rafts carry the travellers down the river past fantastic landscapes and nosy deers.
In the first half of the 17th century Russians began to explore the territory of Taimyr. That was also the time when the river Kotuikan was first described.
A warm ocean used to lap against these rocks. Then the water moved away and the ancient rocks form the surface now.
The Kotuikan river has formed its own valley here and created one of the most scenic landscapes on Earth. It has uncovered geological layers on which one can read the history of our planet.
Water, wind and temperature drop has created a unique landscape here. The rocks, sharp like spades, soar up like Medieval castles.
Travel agencies organize rafting tours along the Kotuikan. These are breathtaking, although dangerous trips.
The travellers fly over a lot of little marvellous lakes.
The helicopter leaves the raftsmen alone with bloodsucking insects.
