Lena Pillars - new point in the UNESCO World Heritage List

The Putorana Plateau ...is the vast basalt plateau almost not disturbed by civilization raising on the north of East Siberia to the north of the polar circle. The area contains some of the largest known nickel deposits in the world. In July 2010 the Putorana Reserve was inscribed on the World Heritage List as a complete set of subarctic and arctic ecosystems in an isolated mountain range, including pristine taiga, forest tundra, tundra and arctic desert systems, as well as untouched cold-water lake and river systems.
