The Manpupuner rock formations also known as the Seven Strong Men Rock Formations are a set of 7 gigantic abnormally shaped stone pillars located north of the Ural mountains in the Komi Republic, Russia. These monoliths are around 30 to42 meters high and jut out of a hilly plateau out of nowhere.
Deemed one of the Seven Wonders of Russia, the weather-beaten Manpupuner rock formations are a very popular attraction in Russia. Their height and abnormal shapes supposedly make the top of these rock giants inaccessible even to experienced rock-climbers.
