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.
