The press service of the Ministry of Natural Resources announced tat the national park "Zyuratkul" will celebrate its thirtieth anniversary in November. Since the beginning of the year, more than 99 thousand people have visited it. For tourists, there are visit centers, gazebos and houses with amenities. In addition, there are free campsites with equipped campfires and barbecues on the territory.
"Zyuratkul" is located in the mountainous part of the Southern Urals. In the central part of the specially protected natural area there is the Nurgush ridge, the highest point of which is the highest in the Chelyabinsk region.
22 hiking and water routes are available to travelers. All trails are marked and suitable for independent visits. Among the most popular: the rock massif "Zyuratkul pillars", the botanical nature monument Vyazevaya Grove, the mountain tundra plateau at the top of the Nurgush ridge.
Some attractions are especially popular in winter. Among them is a natural fountain – an artesian spring, whose groundwater flows out of the ground due to intra-layer pressure. In summer, the fountain hits the sky, reaching a height of seven meters, and in winter it turns into a beautiful ice sculpture of blue ice up to 14 meters high.
On the territory of the national park there is also the only rehabilitation center in the Urals "Sokhatka" for moose calves left orphaned. Here is also the "House of the moose "Sohatka", where moose affected by the activities of poachers are being restored.
