A spectacular nature reserve so close to the city. The stoblys, tall volcanic rock formations are nestled in beautiful forest. You need a guide so you don't have to walk the 7km up to the reserve. If you book through the Sayan Circle you may...More

Well marked trails. Impressive rock formations in the boreal forest. Whole day required if you want to see main sites.

Highly recommended for anyone visiting Krasnoyarsk! The "Pillars" are great! Awesome views from the top. Probably the best nature preserve in Eastern Siberia

IMHO "Stolby" - the place where everyone will be happy. In close to a large city is a primitive wilderness area. Of course, the territory of the excursion zone is not completely untouched. But the feeling of unity with nature is very strong, even despite...More
