Climbing, during which panorama was made occurred on October 30 this year. Videos are also included in the project — explanatory comments by the author and inspectors of the natural park.

“Shooting took one day. Great assistance was rendered by the staff of "Iremel" Natural Park” Oleg Menkov says. “I will mark that this is the second tour of the area, the first one was captured last winter. I would like to continue the series of virtual trips across the plateau of Greater and Lesser Iremel during more interesting weather conditions.”

Oleg Menkov is also an author of the panorama over the "Shulgan-Tash" reserve, but Iremel is a favourite place of the photographer, he climbs it several times a year.

Mountain Iremel is a unique, complex natural monument of the Southern Urals. Iremel is one of the highest and most beautiful mountains of the Southern Urals.
