A Little Story About A Great Adventure – Tunkinsky National Park

Posted on February 28, 2011 by

Many people say Buryatia is a very awesome place. The Eastern Sayan has a breathtaking landscape . The main difficulty is getting to the border village of Mondy, which is separated from Irkutsk by several hundreds of kilometers. Several areas of Buriyatia do not have public transport and Tunkinsky Valley is not an exception. Lucky enough there are guides who take people through montain tours. Though it’s not that easy to get an experienced and knowledgeable guide. A ten days hike is so satisfying since the Siberian Taiga is a manifold – morning fogs, icy fords, mountain passes, rain, storms, emerald-green mountain lakes …

The Village of Mondy. This is where the border-zone with Mongolia starts. It’s a mere 8 kilometers to the border. The sky above the mountains bodes ill especially in summer.

Not a cheerful scenery for an early morning.

After the fog, so comes the sun.

Such is the idyllic scene of  the huts of Buryat farmers.

The canyon river coils.

    I love posts like this, please keep them coming.

    I know of a miner who collected core samples for years and then one day he used them to build a fence all around his home. It’s so cool and a very good use for old core samples.
