Lena PillarsÂ is the name given to a natural rock formation along the banks of theÂ Lena RiverÂ in far eastern Siberia. The pillars are 150-300m (490-985ft) high, and were formed in some of theÂ Cambrian eraÂ sea-basins. The Lena Pillars National Park was inscribed on theÂ World Heritage ListÂ in 2012.
The giant stone colonnades of Lena Pillars Nature Park line the banks of the Lena River in the Sakha Republic, also known as Yakutia. Isolated from each other, the pillars soar to heights of 100 meters or more than 328 feet, and are also rich in Cambrian fossils. They formed by freeze-thaw action over the millennia due to the areaâ€™s extreme changes in temperatures.
