Know Before You Go
Today, the Tuva Republic is part of the Russian Federation. You can best get into Tuva by flying to Abakan and taking a taxi to the Tuvan capital Kyzyl. On the main road from Abakan to Kyzyl, just before reaching the village of Turan, you turn right in direction of Arzhan, also sign-posted (in English) to the Valley of Kings. At the archeological site of "Arzhaan 2," you turn left on a track road, past a farm, follow the power lines up to a small pass between rocky hills. Park your car on the pass and walk some 200 meters on a footpath in a southwestern direction. With sharp eyes you can find the diagram, about one meter wide, on a flat rock facing south.
