Lena Pillars Nature Park in Yakutia

"Lena Pillars” Nature Park in Yakutia is officially included into the UNESCO list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage.


The famous park is the 25th of all Russian objects in the list of the prestigious international organization. As the Minister for Federal Relations and External Affairs of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) Valery Maximov told today, for their region this is not the first collaboration with UNESCO. Previously, this international organization recognized Yakut heroic epos "Olonkho” as "a masterpiece of intangible verbal heritage of humanity". In both cases the UNESCO decision was preceded by a long work of experts. "Lena Pillars" Nature Park is a geological formation on the banks of the Lena River about one hundred kilometers from Pokrovsk. "Pillars" are bizarre, extremely beautiful rocks up to a hundred meters high, built of limestone along the riverbank. The Nature Park with the total area of 485 thousand hectares was established by the decree of the President of Yakutia in August 1994. Its territory hosts excavations and scientific researches; the park is a place of ecological tourism.
