Tuva is a unique region in the south of Siberia, a land of endless steppe and mountains, where the culture of the indigenous population is preserved in its original form. The snowy peaks of the Sayan, Tannu-Ola, Shapshalsky and Senigelen mountains surround the republic like a stone wall, hiding its beauty and riches. This is where the source of the Yenisei River can be found. Shamanic rituals, Buddhism, the unique national cuisine and the uncountable archaeological finds – all make up the region's distinctive character.More about the region
