Those are beautiful pics...Have you ever traveled to these areas? I've read about popular accounts in the 1800s about the mythical Belovode. Have you heard of it?

I have never been to these areas.
Yes,I have. The myth about Belovod'je was very well-known especially during 17-19 centuries.
A lot of peasant families (most of them were old ritualists) moved in direction of Siberia-Altai mountains. Our famous Orientalist Nikolai Rerich even made a try to find this land in the beggining of 20 century. There was quite interesting tv programm dedicated to this theme the last year.We have a cycle of Tv programm (every Tuesday night)about the enigmas of russian history. It's a kind of documentary investigations & adventury elements.

Beautiful pictures, the land is so serene. I have a blog called "Hyperborea".

Yes, that's true.)) Because these areas are under-populated.
These mountains are the highest beyond the Arctic Circle. There is a ski center.The highest point of the Hibines-mount of Fersman is 1200 metres high.
