Preface & location: A snowmobile expedition involves visiting one of the most famous natural sight of central Russia, located on the territory of the Northern Urals, listed in the "Seven Wonders of Russia" and recommended for visiting by tourists. The legendary mountain range of stone idols - plateau Man-Pupu-Ner, this is a unique monument of nature, whose age is more than 200 million years.
It is much more ancient than the Egyptian pyramids and the Sphinx, much older than the English Stonehenge and the Roman Coliseum.
This is one of the most beautiful natural landmark of the Urals and Russia.
The centuries-old ensemble of the hugest stone pillars - idols standing on the sacred mountain, about which Mansi legends have been composed for centuries. Place of power and energy anomalies. Seven 40-meter rocks on the plateau which are sacred idols for all generations of the Komi and Mansi peoples. Unique and inimitable.
