Expedition to the Kinzeluksky Waterfall

This summer the employees of the “Reserve Baikal Region” organized an expedition to the Kinzeluksky waterfall. A comprehensive environmental study needed for creating a natural monument was conducted by the experts of “Krasnoyarskgazprom Neftegazproekt” LLC, as the press service of the Reserve reports.

      Kinzeluksky waterfall is the second tallest waterfall in Russia (more than 300 meters high) located just three kilometers away from the border of the Tofalarsky Game Reserve. The idea of allocating the status of a natural monument to it was repeatedly expressed by the personnel of the protected area. 

      This summer, with regard to the Year of Ecology and the Year of the 100th Anniversary of the Reserve System in Russia, the employees of the Environmental Department of “Krasnoyarskgazprom Neftegazproekt” LLC appealed to the Directorate of the Reserve Systems of the Krasnoyarsk Territory with a proposal to provide volunteer assistance in some nature conservation project; so they were asked to conduct the necessary works on the creation of the “Kinzeluksky waterfall” natural monument. The waterfall is located in the hard-to-reach mountains of the Eastern Sayan, the expedition members reached the place by air, water and motor transport, and then walked on foot for three days, being accompanied by the personnel of the Tofalarsky Game Reserve.

      Krasnoyarsk Territory is located in Central Siberia, extending from the Sayan Mts. and the Minusinsk basin in the south across the Siberian wooded steppe, taiga, and tundra to the Arctic Ocean. The territory stretches along the entire course of the Yenisey River, an important transportation route and electric power source. The distance between Moscow and Krasnoyarsk is about 4, 000km.

      Krasnoyarsk Territory is the second largest Russian region after Sakha Republic (Yakutiya), occupying an area of over 2mln sq. km, which is 13% of the country's total territory. It stretches 3,000 km from north to south. The region lies in the middle of Siberia and shares borders with Tyumen, Tomsk, Irkutsk and Kemerovo Regions, the Republics of Khakassiya, Tyva, and Sakha, and the Taymyr Autonomous Area in the North. The region is among the richest of Russia's regions in natural resources. 80% of the country's nickel, 75% of its cobalt, 70% of its copper, 16% of its coal, and 10% of its gold are extracted in the region. Krasnoyarsk also produces 20% of the country's timber. The region's major industries are: non-ferrous metallurgy, energy, forestry, chemicals, and oil refining.

      The climate of the region is sharply continental, with great fluctuations in temperature in the course of year. As Krasnoyarsk Territory stretches in meridional direction for about 3,000km, the climate is indeed diverse. Central and southern regions of the Territory have long winter, short spring and short and hot summer. Average winter temperature is –18C, average summer temperature is +20C.
