Khibiny

Khibiny

 

the largest and highest (to 1,191 m) mountain massif on the Kola Peninsula. The mountain massif is an intrusive block of nepheline syenites in which rich deposits of apatite-nepheline ore are confined (Kukisvumchorr, Iukspor, Rasvumchorr, and others). The summits are plateau-like, and the slopes are steep with numerous glaciers and névés. Avalanches are frequent. Mountain tundras predominate, with forest tundras of dwarf birch and with spruce and pine-birch forests on the lower slopes. The world’s only polar-alpine botanical garden is located on Mount Vud”evrchorr.
