The Department of Tourism Development and Environmental Education of the Yakut national park "Lena Pillars" summed up the results of the tourist season in 2023.

"At the beginning of December 2023, 31,110 people visited the park, of which 11,500 visitors in winter and 19,160 visitors in summer," the message on the national park's website says.

As noted in the protected areas, unlike the previous two years, this year's summer tour season has become the most popular time for park guests. Winter Lena pillars also did not leave the residents of Yakutia and travelers indifferent.

"We hope that in the coming year our tourists will be able to appreciate the new ecological trail with a length of over 3,000 meters, which will be more comfortable for climbing up to the top of the Lena Pillars. Now the first stage of its development has started," said Arkady Semenov, director of the national park, whose words are quoted in the message.

At the beginning of the new year, the next winter tour season will be launched, the exact date will be known with the opening of the Batamai - Labydya ice crossing.

Lena Pillars is a unique complex of rocks stretching for kilometers along the Lena coast in Yakutia. Lena Pillars Park is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List on the basis that "the object represents an outstanding example reflecting the main stages of the Earth's history, including traces of ancient life, ongoing geological processes of development of forms of the Earth's surface that are important, or significant geomorphological and physiographic phenomena."
