Tours to Ural Mountain
The Ural Mountain range, that follows the entire eastern border of the Perm province offers unlimited possibilities for outdoor adventures. Its sceneries, peaks, rocks, caves, uncountable rivers, vast taiga and numerous - often ancient - villages and towns provide excellent opportunities for active outdoor tours. The 2500km Ural Mountain range is the boundary line between Europe and Asia. Despite being mostly wilderness, there is a complex human history that has evolved in the foothills of this mountain range; such as the indigenous Bashkir’s trading links with Middle Eastern merchants from the 10th Century onward and the Mongol Empire’s influence on its northern Arctic reaches, which resulted in the Khanate of Sibir, the northernmost Muslim state. History aside, this prominent geographical feature on the Eurasian Continent has numerous possibilities for trekking, climbing, skiing and cultural trips, that are little explored by international travelers.
