The ice crust is five to seven kilometers wide, about 40 kilometers long, and up to seven meters thick. Pobeda peak, the highest point in Northeastern Siberia (at a height of 3147 meters), is another attraction. Travelers can also see Balagan-Taas volcano and other beautiful mountains. A visit to the park is an opportunity to drink some of the best mineral water in the world. The flora and fauna of the park are very rich. The Moma river is 600 kilometers long. It has strong and fast streams, especially along shallows, that make it a great attraction for rafters.
