Azasskaya Cave (archive)
NOVOKUZNETSK, Kemerovo Region, August 14 (RIA Novosti) – You may not find Bigfoot in Siberia, but at least you can access the creature’s alleged stomping ground now that volunteers have cleared the track that leads across the taiga to its believed lair.
The “environmental pathway” to the Azasskaya Cave in the Kemerovo Region is now easy to navigate for tourists visiting the Shorsky National Park, which is home to the cave, district officials said Wednesday.
Volunteers have cleaned the 18-kilometer track of shrubs and fallen trees and set up tables and chairs and a welcome banner for visiting tourists, the report said.
The region has been trying to capitalize on Bigfoot since 2008, when local hunters first claimed to have spotted a giant hairy hominid in the taiga.
