The Weathering Pillars – Natural Wonder of Russia

The Weathering Pillars is a geological monument, located in the Troitsko-Pechorsky region of Komi Republic in the territory of the Pechora-Ilych Nature Reserve on Mount Man-Pupu-Ner (on Mansi people language it means “Little Mountain of Idols”). The pillars height varies from 30 to 42 meters.

About 200 million years ago, there were high mountains in this area. Gradually, frost and sun, snow and wind destroyed them leaving these amazing objects. The Weathering Pillars location on Google Maps. Photos by aventure
