Peaks in Inylchek tau ridge.

“What an open space! What an enchanting beauty in all these snow giants, towering up to the sky! What a variety of colors and tones in these fabulous cliffs of an endless chain of mountains, lost somewhere far, far away. How deeply all this touches the soul and heart of a person! He is seized by such a feeling of delight, which is beyond human strength to describe."
