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.
