Tourists are hiding from the Russian heatwave

at this glacier valley

Location: Yakutia, Russia

'Bulus' is a permafrost park north of Siberia

A heatwave has brought daily temperatures to around 90°F

giving visitors a refreshing chance

to witness snow and heat at the same time

(SOUNDBITE) (Russian) YAKUTSK RESIDENT, ALYONA TURAEVA, SAYING:"I like this place because of the unique nature which you can see only here in Yakutia. Its virgin forests and preserved nature attract tourists not only from Russia but also from abroad to go there".
