Tuvan Burial Mounds to Become a Tourist Complex

Tuvan Burial Mounds to Become a Tourist Complex
The remains of ritual structures near "Arzhaan-2" - the main burial mound in the Skythian "Valley of Kings", Tuva

The new museum and tourist centre in Tuva will occupy the whole territory of the ancient burial sites, including the White Lake, which lies not far from “Arzhaan-2” - the main barrow of the 6th century BC. The current infrastructure near the lake contains the one summer tourist camp that can accommodate about 100 people a day. 

      The future complex has a potential to become the major tourist and cultural centre in the region, because the “Valley of Kings” is the largest Scythian burial place in all Northern Asia and the only that has not been looted.

      As the scientists suppose, there are about 200 mounds in the Tuvan “Valley of Kings”. Archaeologists explored more than 30 ancient spots last summer. The expedition still has three years to examine the monuments before the workers will come here to lay the new railroad track.
