The Lena Pillars Nature Park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Yakutia, Russia.
The main attraction are the rock formations on the bank of Lena River — the Lena Pillars. They are made up of layers and different types of rock and minerals. These formations are 150-300 m high, and were formed in some of the Cambrian period sea-basins. The park has been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2012.
Flora and faunaEdit
The park has a continental Siberian climate with lows down to -60°C in winter and heights up to 30°C in summer.
The nature park can be accessed from Yakutsk by river boat. The 180 km journey upstream (south) takes about a day.
Fees and permitsEdit
There are few documented walking trails in the park, so advance planning is advised.
The most impressive rock formations can be found between the villages Petrovskoye and Tit-Ary.
