Meteorologists and glaciologists work here at the ‘Mynzhilki’ and ‘Tuiyk Su’ centers at a hight of 3000 meters. These people study global climat changes and alpine glaciers and control dangerous mud-flow moraine lakes. They truly believe that there is nothing better than mountains!

Although the sign says 3100 meters, the actual hight of the ‘Mynzhilki’ center’s locations is 3017 meters.

    Their taste in music seems to be Vysotzki, as they have a poster of him.

    I think its from Brecht “the good person of sechvan” whcih Vysotzki played at taganka.

    No wonder they love him.

    Um, ya. I think this is the best ER post ever, but I’m a big fan of mountains…

    Great post. Would have liked to know more about the colorful round “cottages” too. The main building is quite an oddity as far as construction goes. It is literally pieced together over the years, or so it looks.
