Rocks on the Berd, Novosibirsk Region, all year round

Rocks on the river Berd, also known as Zveroboy, in Maslyaninsky District, is one of the most beautiful areas in the whole Novosibirsk Region. Tastes differ, of course, but I think there is hardly any person, who would feel indifferent standing on top of a rocky hill looking at the curve of a small river.

In this area the Salair Range is situated, which is not high (the highest peak is about 450 m only), but its beauty is no less than that of Altai.  Sometimes it is referred to as the Siberian Switzerland. There are several ski resorts here, which turns the area to a popular holiday destination.
In summer and autumn the place looks fantastic, in winter it fascinates with loads of snow.

In summer everything around is all shades of green. It was strikingly beautiful when I first saw it.


















In the fall the scenery looks even more stunning than in summer with all this gold, crimson, orange, yellow and green colors around.

No camera can ever catch all the shades of nature, and we all know it. My impression was that of looking at a patchwork carpet.

The river Berd is a quiet and slow one, but in spring and early summer it is accessible for rafters.

The place is 160 km to the south-east of Novosibirsk, while the last 60-70 km one has to drive along earth road, so one should be prepared to get covered in road dust in summer and in road mud in spring.

This is a full day tour. The hike from the parking place to the viewpoint takes approximately 45 minutes and the same back. you are recommended to take some water and snacks with you.

    Sorry I don’t speak any Russian. I’m interested in any tours you may have from Novosibirsk. I will be here for one month for work and i’m looking for something interesting to see or do in my free time.

    Hope to hear from you soon,
