    Beautiful photos. A bit disheartening to read that foreigners need to submit documentation 45 days in advance in order to visit this area. I’ve never heard of travel restrictions like that in what essentially mounts to open wilderness.

    Several years ago, even for Russian citizens, it was necessary to obtain such passes. So over time, this procedure will most probably be even more simplified for foreigners and may be completely canceled.
