Massifs ranging from 1,500 to 3,000 m in elevation predominate. The highest elevation is 4,464 m (Mount Besbaskan). Kora River originating high in the mountains in an ancient kingdom of glaciers is flowing in the bottom of the gorge. In winter and early spring waters of the river are calm and transparent but when the snow covering the mountain slopes begin to melt away, the river becomes rough and inexorable and easily rolls over the huge boulders and breaks like matches the age-old trees. The road winding along the river is accessible for strong vehicles only and delivers a lot of emotions to all those who dare to go through it. The forests are around as far as the eye can see. Spruce and fir alternate with a lacy greenery of birch trees and meadows are covered with colorful carpet of flowers. The road goes higher and the nature becomes more severe: marry birches give way to high mountain plateaus and dozens of large and small waterfalls rush down from the majestic rocky peaks. Inaccessibility of this area as a border zone for decades helped to save a brown bear, Siberian stag, mountain goat as well as the wolf, fox and the jackrabbit which are quite frequently met by travelers.
