The Mongun Taiga

The Mongun Taiga, meaning Silver Mountain, is a massif in Tuva, southwest Siberia. Located between Mongolia and the Altai. In 2003 The Uvs Nuur Basin was inscripted on the Unesco Whs list. The inscription was for twelve protected areas in this region, one of them is the Mongun Taiga.
It is a harsh land of wind-blown high-altitude meadows, stony slopes and icy rivers. Only strong and tough people survive here, Tuvans of Turkic roots, living a nomadic life with their herds of sheep and yaks.
