Travel to Astrakhan
There is a mountain in the Astrakhan land, and its name is Big Bogdo. This is the highest point for hundreds of kilometers around (170 meters high), which offers a stunning panorama of the vast expanses of the steppe and the salt Lake Baskunchak.
Long ago, it was a sacred place for the Kalmyk people, where they came to worship the Mount and the White Elder. But now the mountain is included in the Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky Reserve, which is one of the most beautiful places in the region.
