It is not surprising that on this trail people’s camps and their settlements are not uncommon. Everything that archaeologists find on them is collected and carefully studied - in order to then replenish the collections of museums in our country. Accommodation in the archaeological camp of the Russian Geographical Society TUNNUG. Since 2018, the Russian Geographical Society and the Institute of the History of Material Culture of the Russian Academy of Sciences (IIMK RAS) have been studying the Tunnug mound located in Tuva. It is part of the Valley of the Kings, where many barrows of nobility of Scythian time are located. The first season showed that the burial ground - the oldest of all discovered, dates back to the 9th century BC.

Gold jewelry made more than 10 centuries ago still amazes the imagination with the artfulness of the pattern and the thoroughness of processing. The discovery of the “Scythian gold” changed the idea of ​​the ancient civilization of the Scythians once and for all. It remains unclear how the ancient people, without technology, were able to carry out such painstaking work. You will see the jewelry craftsmanship of ancient creators with your own eyes. Everyone who considers himself a true traveler should visit Kyzyl, because it is here that the geographical center of Asia is located. Having visited the museum, we will go exactly here, on the embankment of the Yenisei River, where the corresponding monument “Center of Asia” is located. Its author, Dashi Namdakov, is known not only in Russia but also abroad. One of his sculptures, the She-Guardian, is installed at the Marble Arch in northeastern Hyde Park in London. In 2013, for a series of works based on Scythian motifs, he was awarded the title “Artist of the Year” at the international sculpture competition “Pietrasanta and Versilia” in Italy. This series also includes the bronze sculptural ensemble “Royal Hunt”. You will also see her on the embankment of Kyzyl. 17-00 Transfer to the airport of Kyzyl or to the city of Abakan (agreed in advance).
