the river near the Mongolian border

Jus-Tyt (Yustyt, Yustut), alt. tyt – larch. Yustut – a hundred larches.

We go, we go to the border with Mongolia, to the last settlement, that is, to the village of Tashanta. It’s interesting to get to the end of the Chui tract. What is there ?, at the border.

Asphalt road, laid as a ruler, rests on the mountains. Behind them is Mongolia. And around the steppe. Chuya steppe, a unique, unique landscape in itself. Just before Tashanto, the rock outcrop is exposed. An interesting place, I call it – a cemetery of animals.

You can get to the valley of Yustyt by different roads. You can pave the way through the village of Kokorya or go straight to the steppe beyond the village of Zhanaul. I recommend going through Sozontu Pass. It is with him that opens the most epic view of the valley of Justin.

The road goes along the educational border of the Russian Federation. What is the Learning Boundary? I do not know and no one knows, but the money is mastered). Kilometers through 10-12 prickles ends, or rather just breaks nowhere and PCB along with it.

Where it ends, a good place for fishing. The grayling in Yustyt is not large, but it will not make you bored with good biting. It’s quite possible to catch a few dozen fish. Fishing, it’s a pleasure. Wear roaches and forward. The rapids are not deep, the water is transparent, there are no shrubs.

The water in the river is usually clean, crystal clear. The fact is that the main tributaries of Justin are derived from two lakes: Boguty and Kindiktikol. Water settles in them from suspension and comes out already clean and transparent. The nature of the current varies from site to site. This is the rapids’ rapids and a calm steppe current.

In the valley of Justis, a huge cluster of ancient artifacts. Graves, burial mounds, kereksurs, deer stones, stells, ancient metallurgical furnaces and the like.

The monuments here are very diverse. Barrows, altars, megaliths, ceramic furnaces and furnaces for smelting bronze and iron.

The famous stele – “Conquest of Genghis Khan” and less epic, but no less ancient petroglyphs in the form of drawings of animals and the so-called Yenisei runes.

But the stones lined around. The geometry of the lying stones, leaves no doubt that this is the work of man. Huge boulders lie along practically the right circumference. On a small plateau, located above the river, there are no other stones larger than a football. Who brought these stones to this place and for what purpose? Can I make geosamples, check orientation around the world? Maybe it’s an ancient observatory or a calendar?

The valley is still waiting for its researchers and photographers.
