“Shapka Monomakha” Mountain

Because of the climate, this area is very rich in vegetation, thats why people call this place “Siberian Jungles”.
It’s not difficult to get to Vydrino village. All you need is to to buy a ticket on a train, electric train or a bus. The starting point of the route is a bridge. Turn to the right before the bridge and keep going towards the forest.

There are a lot of beautiful places to the South from Vydrino village:
– Warm Lakes: their temperature in summer time is about 28 degrees! For Siberia it’s like a miracle
– Tal’cinskiy Peak: its hight is 1802 metres. You will need about six hours to conquer this mountain. But it’s worth it because from the top of the peak there is a perfect view in all directions
