(Active tour in Russia)
The Putorana Plateau is a country of thousands of lakes and waterfalls, their concentration on the plateau is the largest in the country, and here on the Kyida River one may see the highest waterfall in Russia (108 meters). The landscapes of the reserve are unique in their diversity, there is a luxurious variety of flora and fauna. From the base in good weather using binoculars you can observe the unique Putorana bighorn sheep listed in the Book of endangered species.
The plateau is also famous among ufologists: unusual celestial phenomena are regularly observed here in the form of the appearance of bright fireballs flying along zigzag trajectories. And it is apparently not without reason that since ancient times Lake Lama was considered among the Evenks who once lived here a shamanic place, a place of power, a place of rituals and communication with the spirits of nature and the spirits of ancestors. This is a place of great power, the concentration of which is in the legendary Shaitan Mountain, opposite which the Bunisyak base is located.
Another amazing place to visit will be the area of the Khoisi River where according to legend there is an ancient burial mound - the burial place of one of the commanders of Alexander the Great, who died from an arrow wound. His detachment climbed up the river in order to reach the remains of the ancient city which was located somewhere at the top of the river. In the descriptions of the campaigns of Alexander the Great made by Arab historians the journey of his army to the Land of Gloom far to the north is described. As the historian Novgorodov convincingly proved, Alexander's army reached the lower reaches of the Yenisei and Ob rivers, and his troops went to Putorana.
In the evenings at the Bunisyak base, at the request of the guests and if there is free time, excursions are conducted to the unique ethnographic museum located in the halls of the guest house. The museum contains unique life and household items related to the indigenous people of Taimyr. There are products made of mammoth bone, traditional clothes, in the center of the hall on the second floor there is a real two floors high shaman's tent.
Those who wish can listen to lectures on geology, archeology, history, shamanism, culture and ethnography of Taimyr. The most unique exhibits of the museum are Nganasan cult objects, shaman's helper spirits, shaman's crowns.
The owner of the base - Oleg Krashevsky is recognized by the Nganasans and part of the Dolgans of Taimyr as a Russian White shaman and he has the Nganasan name Syrai Kou Nyaya which means White spirit man. Thanks to this recognition he managed to collect objects of the shamanic cult, which have no analogues.
In all routes, tourists are accompanied by experienced huntsmen who know the area well and have experience working with tourists. The number of huntsmen accompanying the group depending on the size of the group is from 1 to 5. If the group is very different in terms of physical form it is divided into two or more smaller groups each of which is accompanied by a huntsman. All rangers have walkie-talkies and are in constant contact both with each other and with the base.
