Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug

Polyarno-Uralsky Natural Park

The park was created in 2014. It covers an area of more than 300,000 hectares (~740,000 acres) and is divided into 4 sectors: Gorno-Khadatinsky, Sob-Rayisky, Hanmei-Paipudynsky, and Polyarno-Uralsky. Each of these parts has its own features: for instance, Sob-Rayisky is 80% mountains. They are called Ray-Iz and there is the Potyarny peak at 1,290 m high. The Gorno-Khadatinsky part has many rivers and lakes.

Polyarno-Uralsky has rare species of animals included in the Red Book of Russia, such as the broad-billed sandpiper, Siberian salamander, gray toad, wolverine, and river otter. Speaking of rare birds, you can find the red-breasted goose, lesser white-fronted goose, Siberian crane, pallid harrier, great snipe, and many others. The site also contains protected geological landmarks: the natural monument Nyrdwoamen-Shor which has outcrops of nephrite, jadeite, jasper and other minerals, as well as non-freezing lakes Ebey-Tou, Big Pike Lake and Big Khadatinskoye Lake... Also, there is the 501st railroad construction site — one of the biggest GULAG projects and the road to the Kharbey molybdenum mine. They are also under protection — together with Cold War nuclear silos, traditional nomad camps and holy places of the indigenous people of the North. Incidentally the Polyarno-Uralsky natural park allows deer breeding, fishing and hunting for the indigenous people, but tourists.
