И снова Урал! На этот раз для победителя первого тура загадок. На фотографиях показан Южный Урал, а если быть точнее, на первом снимке — Ямантау – высшая точка Южного Урала, расположенная в Белорецком районе Республики Башкортостан (1656 метров). На втором — Иремель – вторая по величине вершина Южного Урала высотой 1582 м. На территории хребта Аваляк, откуда берут начало притоки реки Белая, и горы Иремель создан национальный парк «Иремель». И уже завтра утром на странице в Twitter ждите новую загадку! // Ural once again! This time for the first quiz tour winner. The photos show Southern Ural, with Mount Yamantau specifically in the first photo. This is the highest (1,656 m) peak of the Southern Ural located in Bashkortostan. The second photo shows the second highest mountain Iremel (1,582 m). The Iremel Natural Park was created in the Avalyak mountain ridge area with the Belaya river feeders. #союзмс16 #soyuzms16 #мкс63 #iss63 #мкс #iss #Урал #Ural #Ямантау #Yamantau #Аваляк #Avalyak
