Trip to Man-Pupu-Nyor Pillars
June 11, 2016 23:43


Scientists believe that Mansi pillars formed by weathering of soft rock from the high mountains, which stood on the place 200-300 million years ago. For millennia rain, snow, wind, cold and heat were gradually destroying the mountains and weathering, washing out and freezing the weak rocks. Farewell rocks consist of a solid sericitic and quartzite slates.

They almost were not destroyed and survived till our time. Six residual outcrops are standing in a row and one is at a distance. They are very similar to human figures, so it is not surprising that Mansi worshiped them. However, rising up to the Man-Pupu-Nyor is considered the greatest sin. Everyone who saw the pillars says that you start to feel an inexplicable feeling of fear with them.

Pillars are good at any time of a year. In winter, they are covered with snow and frost and give an impression of giant crystal structures.

There are fogs often in autumn, and the pillars are enveloped by mysterious haze. In spring and in summer they resemble the stone idols. However, it is not easy to get here. This is a journey for tempered and physically vigorous people. The climate is harsh here. In winter the temperature does not rise above -15C and +18C in summer.
