Chokportas

Chokpartas (Shokpartas) is on Ukok plateau in 20 kilometers south-west of Dzhazator Village. It is a kingdom of frozen stone lumps, bizarre stone sculptures resembling castles, animals or something else you can imagine. Chokportas is beauty, mystical attraction of severe silence, faces of mountains showing the eternity of nature and reminding the frailty of human existence. Chokportas is pure absence of all redundant, associated with civilization. It is a place just to sit down and dip, meditating and dissolving.
