Discover Russia's Big Stone River - A Little Known Natural Wonder
Jan. 20, 2020
Stone rivers, also known as stone runs, can be found all over the world, from Bulgaria’s Vitosha Mountains to the Falkland Islands, but none are as impressive-looking as the Big Stone River, in Russia’s Chelyabinsk Oblast region.
Spanning 6 km long, this gigantic conglomeration of boulders starts off as several small “streams” with and average width of 20 meters that later join to form a large stone river with an average width of 200 meters (in some places up to 700 meters).
Big Stone River is considered the most interesting sight of Taganai Park, and one of the most impressive in all of Russia.
The thing that sets Big Stone River apart from other stone run around the world and makes it live up to its name, is the way it cuts through a thick pine forest like a real river, only one that hasn’t moved an inch for thousands of years.
