The route to nature reserve " Lena Pillars "is very popular among foreigners, while our compatriots travel there very rarely.
The nature reserve was established in 1995.
The nature reserve is divided into 2 parts: the natural rock formations along the banks of the river Lena and the place- Tukulaan, where the scientists found the remains of Mammoths, ancient bisons, rhinoceros.
Sergey Dolya told about his trip to Lena Pillars on the ship in the livejournal.
" The name of our steam-ship was “ Michael Svetlov”, that was not the same one, that was in the film "The Diamond Arm".
The first stop was at sunset. While the other tourists made a fire, we were playing the guitar.
The next day we visited an only one in Russia a nature reserve, that opened in 2006,where bisons live, that were delivered from Canada.
Now, 34 bisons live in a nature reserve.
The concert of the national music of Yakutia was held in the evening.
On waking up the next day, we saw, at last, Lena Pillars.
The length of Lena Pillars is 90km.
We landed on a shore.
The shaman met us, he performed some rites and wished us a luck.
We decided to climb up Lena Pillars.
The route was not simple. We overcame four km.
Footpaths were made carefully. They had a fence with handrails. Ladders were here and there.
Marks that had indicated the traversed path, and the congratulations about overcoming the route,all of this created a sense of care and hospitality.
