Ridges in sunny outfits (photo of the day)

Features of the Far Eastern Autumn

The multi-tiered taiga with its woody dominants - giants and undergrowth, shrubs, grasses, mosses and lianas provide a variety of colors and polyformism. Elevation changes, as, for example, on the Khekhtsirsky, Sikhote-Alin or Livadia ridges work wonders: sliding your gaze along the hill "from crown to toe" you can see all the stages of autumn at the same time, when flowers are still fragrant in the lowlands and gullies, and the tops are just about try on snow caps.

A view of the fragment of the ridge of the Small Hechtir on the foreground and the blue chain of the Great Hechtir - on the back. This is a photo of Khabarovsk Elena Dmitrievich made in the Bolshekhekhtsirsky Reserve from the Snake Mountain. Autumn in the Khabarovsk and Primorsky Territories pampers with warm weather, and on weekends, even in the seemingly impassable wilds, you can meet tourists with cameras or mobiles. 

"Feelings are indescribable, breathtaking looking at these endless beauties! This time, the number of people did not allow me to retire, and in previous times I could sit for hours ... watch ... inhale ... listen to all the sounds ... There there are birds, and terribly biting ants, and ticks, but you want to go there again and again "- shared the author of the pictures.

In clear weather, Khekhtsir is visible from the Khabarovsk embankment. This medium-sized ridge is 35 km long and about 10 km wide, rises above the Amur-Ussuri lowland, which is very swampy in places. It splits into two massifs: a larger and more mountainous western one - Bolshoy Khekhtsir, maximum height 950 m, and a small hilly eastern one - Maly Khekhtsir, maximum height 413. There is a dense river network, the Chirki river is considered to be the deepest. The foot of the hills is twined with wild grapes and lemongrass. Various types of birches, maples, lindens, elms, fir trees, bird cherry trees, Amur velvet, Manchurian walnut, Mongolian oak grow here. At altitudes above 50-100 meters above sea level, coniferous-deciduous forests are inferior to dark coniferous forests (cedars, fir and spruce). And sometimes a tourist should not just give way, but also have a hand flare at hand: brown and Himalayan bears and Amur tigers are found here. 

One of the top-most visited Primorskie Sopki is Falaza, she is Litovka aesthetically in no way inferior to Khekhtsir. This is the second highest peak of the Livadia Range, a two-headed, if not to say, humpbacked mountain: its two peaks are located half a kilometer from each other. The height of the main one is 1279,4 meters above sea level, the second is slightly lower. The summit and northern slopes are covered with forest, and the southern slopes are covered with kurums mixed with various shrubs, which, together with placers of stones and interspersed rocks, adds color to the autumn palette.
