Vostoky Sayany/Eastern Sayans (10 photos)
by Bernard Grua Silver Note Writer [C:  W: 0 N: 13] (103)

This theme is dedicated to the beautiful Eastern Sayan mountains and to Okinsky Rayon a 1500 "meters plato" enclosed by them. This is an area where Western tourists are almost never seen. Inhabitants are Buriats, Soyots and Tofalars. They are specialized in yacks, cow, sheeps and horses herding. This is a remote land that could not be joined by car until a rough road was built in the 90's.
