Image 2: En Route to the Saridag Monastery Site

Travel to the site, which is located in harsh, inaccessible terrain, is difficult and possible only on horseback. The landscape is dominantly taiga forest with tall grassy plants and several riverbeds. In 2013, the first archeological expedition by the Institute of History and Archeology took two days to reach the destination.
