Nowadays there remain less places in the world where the nature doesn´t reflect the results of human activity. The adventure team Alpindustria offers you a tour to one of theses places - The Putorana Plateau, unique and surprisingly little-known area situated at the northwest of Krasnoyarskiy Krai.
It is a high-lying basalt plateau that is unrivalled for its beauty and relief peculiarity, as well as for the number of lakes (more than 25 thousand!) and waterfalls situated at such a high level. There are two climatic zones (taiga and forest tundra) on the territory of the Putorana Plateau.
Due to the local peculiarities the Putorana Plateau is a perfect place for trekking and rafting including visiting waterfalls and wild nature sites. These places are severe as you will be able to understand during the tour because of the unpredictable weather. Although a mystery magnetism of the area will remove all the everyday inconveniences to the second place and even turn them into an element necessary to join the nature. The tours to the Putorana Plateau will be unforgettable for you and the visit to this wonderful place will live in your heart forever!
The Putorana Plateau is a kingdom of water, rocks and wild nature, a paradise for those who likes extreme travelling, fishing and navigation on rafts or catamarans. Although tourist groups don't get here too often. The Putorana is one of the most difficult places in Russia for recreational outdoor sports. There are places where no human has ever set foot here.
The most picturesque places of the plateau are concentrated in its centre that is almost 300 km away from the nearest inhabited locality. To observe one of the real pearls of our planet Earth one should overcome important distances, mountain passes or take an expensive helicopter.
