Kuznetsk Alatau - a mountain system in the south of Western Siberia, the Abakan ridge stretching from the northwest to the line of the Trans-Siberian railway, stretching about 300 km. Kuznetsky Alatau is not a single mountain range, and is formed by a complex system of medium-high arrays. The highest part is tagged hrimeet-Tisch (Celestial Teeth). Here some peaks reaching 2100-2200 m.

On the slopes of the Northern Urals (Komi Republic), on the territory of the Pechora-Ilych nature reserve is Mount Man-Pupu-Ner. On two tops, separated by a saddle, settled quaint stone idols.
