Krasnoyarskie stolby nature reserve

­A unique nature reserve called the Krasnoyarskiye Stolby, or the Pillars, can be found only four kilometers away from the city of Krasnoyarsk in Siberia. Here, thousands of rocky cliffs lie scattered in the Siberian taiga. Geologically speaking, the pillars are made of magma that cooled millions of years ago without making it to the surface. Several hundred rocks polished by wind and rain are concentrated in a fairly small area. None of them is more than a hundred-meters tall. Discover the beauty of the nature reserve on RT!
