The Vishersky State Reserve, located on the western slope of the Northern Ural of the Perm Territory, was founded in 1991. Occupying an area of 2412 square  km reserve stretches from south to north for more than 90 km, from west to east - more than 30 km. The reserve has unique and typical only for the Northern Urals mountain landscapes. In addition, West Vishera is a natural habitat for 36 species of mammals (reindeer, sable, etc.), 155 species of birds, 3 species of amphibians and more than 12 species of fish (European grayling, Siberian taimen, etc.).

The Visherskaya cave, the Tabornaya and Svetly creek waterfalls, the Bobrovaya river, the Saklaimsori-Chakhl mountain, the Tulimskiy ridge, and the Ablizina glacier   are considered to be especially valuable natural objects of the reserve.
