Places of power in Russia: Altai, Arkaim, Iremel, Caucasus.

There are several places in Russia where I would definitely like to go. These are the so-called «places of power». For example, the well-known Altai, Baikal, Kamchatka, Karelia ... I have already been somewhere, somewhere else not, but somewhere it is not the first time that attracts me. In addition to the fact that these places of power have a certain energy, which the crowds of people talk about, it is also very beautiful there. It seems to me that every person should visit such places of power, well, at least for those who are fond of travel and think about life.

Places of power are energetic places on the planet in which a person feels something unusual for himself, an emotion, a state. This is especially noticeable in contrast to the bustling city life. Often, after a trip, changes in life begin to occur, or an awareness of something important for oneself comes. An understanding comes that you need to do something, change in your life. Sometimes answers to long-asked questions come. True, it happens and quite the opposite, you do not feel anything, smart thoughts do not come. It depends on the person himself, whether he needs this understanding or not, depends on the goal that he set for himself when he was going to travel. It is possible that this particular place is not his place, does not suit him. In any case, if you like to be in nature, then even without any realizations there, you will be amazed at the beauty of these places, and you will return refreshed and full of new impressions..

There are many places of power in Russia. And on the whole earth, probably not to go round in a lifetime. A place of power can be, in principle, any place, not only nature, but also cities, villages, structures and buildings. I am most attracted by the mountains ...

Places of power in Altai are, in fact, the entire Altai Mountains. There are many different tourist routes to different peaks and glaciers, along rivers and lakes, of different categories of difficulty. Using any of them, you can feel the energy of this place. People have very different sensations, and this region is perceived differently. A truly stunning and quirky place. So I want to go back to Altai mountains...

Places of power in the Caucasus. There are a large number of dolmens, stone buildings that have been compared to Stonehenge. There are many theories associated with dolmens regarding their origin. But the fact is that many people around them feel special and even communicate with them. The easiest way to see dolmens is in the villages of Vozrozhdenie and Pshada, located near Gelendzhik, which are easily accessible for visiting, both with excursions and on your own..

Places of power in the Urals. Like any mountains, the Ural is itself a place of power. Separately, I would like to highlight Mount Iremel in the South Urals with its beautiful streams and stone rivers. The Bashkirs consider this mountain holy, and earlier it was impossible to climb it.

The place of power Arkaim is located in the Chelyabinsk region, on the territory of the reserve, and attracts people from all over Russia. In this place many years ago there was an ancient city, which was burned and abandoned.. Arkaim city had the shape of two concentric circles, in which scientists supposedly lived.
