Sikachi-Alyan is a small Nanai village on the bank of Amur river located 75 km north of Khabarovsk. The place is famous for petroghliphs ("masks"), the neolithic drawings carved in bazalt stones. The road to Sikachi-Alyan is not bad by Russian standards. There is also a tourist center "Velkom" in front of the entrance to the village, where one can enjoy exposition of aboriginal artefacts and findings. The reconstructed wooden houses and boats of ancient people are scattered around to give the idea of living in different periods in this region.
