Soviet Union 1959, Lena River.
The stamp was issued in the series "Landscapes of the Soviet Union".

Comprising a vast area of 12'721 km² the property of the Lena Pillars Nature Park occupies the right bank of the middle part of Lena River in the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia) of the Russian Federation. The pillars are 150–300 metres high. The Lena Pillars National Park was inscribed on the World Heritage List in 2012.

They were produced by the region’s extreme continental climate with an annual temperature range of almost 100 degrees Celsius (from –60 °C in winter to +40 °C in summer). The pillars form rocky buttresses isolated from each other by deep and steep gullies developed by frost shattering directed along intervening joints.
