RUSSIA ~ Taganay National Park - Chelyabinsk Oblast ~

... Beautiful winter scene with ❄️frost❄️ covered trees... a wonderful winter escape in the Ural Mountains... these mountains create a natural divide between Asia and Europe and at their southern tip lies Taganay National Park... a sweeping valley bound by rugged peaks with pristine mountain lakes and dense alpine forests... the park has several hidden and untouched eco-systems, including tundra, meadows, forests and sparse woodlands... it is the most popular national park of the South Urals among nature-loving tourists... a piece of the pristine taiga... Thanks a lot Oleg!【ツ】 

Taganay National Park was established in 1991 and was the first in the Urals. It covers the northern part of the mountain ranges of the Southern Urals.Total area of the park is about 568km2. Taganay is a group of mountain ridges with the highest point rising 1178 m. above sea level.

The 97% of the territory of the national park is covered with forests of Siberian spruce, fir, pine, larch, maple, willow, lime, birch, alder, and aspen. 

The forest is a safe home for brown bears, wolves, lynxes, elk, martens, and otters. The park features over 180 bird species, over 55 mammal species and about 10 fish species.
