Sayan Mountains


Rough beauty of mountains


Sayan Mountains lie in the very centre of Asian continent. Their ridges stretch for many hundreds of kilometres and occupy a really huge area of 455 000 square kilometres between Lake Baikal and Altaj Mountains (it makes the territory of modern Germany, Netherlands and Switzerland together).

The region of Sayan Mountains remains as beautiful and untouched as it was centuries ago. Only a few tourists and mountain climbers come here looking for adventures.
