74: Buryatia is a Russian republic in Eastern Siberia. The landscapes of the region vary from Mongolian-like steppe in the south to impassable forest taiga in the north. In the west the mountains collide with the waters of the world's largest lake, Baikal. The far south-west region is covered by the snowy peaks of the Sayan Mountains. The population is mainly Buryat and Russian with some Evenks in the north. The main religions are Buddhism, shamanism and Orthodox Christianity – and very often an interesting combination of all three. I would like to thank all the people who I crossed paths with in wonderful region of Buryatia. Yuri Tyunyagin
