Putorana Plateau
The Putorana Plateau is a vast and practically unaffected by civilization basalt plateau, rising in the north of Eastern Siberia slightly north of the Arctic Circle. The main part of the plateau is occupied by the Putorana Reserve created in 1988 - one of the largest in Russia.

In the reserve live: 36 species of fish, 1 species of amphibians, 184 species of birds, 34 species of mammals. The migration route of the largest reindeer of the Eurasia, the Taimyr population, passes through the plateau territory.

Here lives a little-studied aboriginal form of snow ram: about 15,000 years ago, this population was isolated from the main range of the species.

An ancient and incredibly beautiful plateau is located in the geographical center of Russia. The name of the place is translated as "mountains without peaks" and is included in the List of World Heritage Sites of UNESCO.

There is no cellular communication and electricity, in general, little has changed here over the past 250 million years, but there are more than 20 thousand waterfalls here. The area of the plateau is 250 thousand km, which is comparable with the territory of Great Britain.
