Our aim is the central part of Khibiny Mountains: it is a stone circus with the "Academicheskoye Lake" in the middle. The Lake is located 760 m above the sea level and originally was born from a glacier. In winter snow, wind and avalanches create beautiful nature sculptures of the stony walls of the circus (we stay safe far enough). We will pass one of four glaciers of Khibiny Mountains on our way. We drive over Kukisvumchorr pass, the valley of Risyok River and the Northern Rischorr pass. Our way back is over the Umbozero Pass. The route length of 60 km.u.
