A Russian expedition club has claimed that they have discovered a huge pyramid in a remote mountain region that is four times larger than the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The discovery was made in the district of Beryozovsky in the Russian regions of Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug of Tyumen Oblast by members of expedition club when they were trying to find a suitable path for future explorations using satellite images.
As seen in the satellite pictures, they came across a pyramid that appears to have perfect geometric proportions.
Evgeny Svitov, head of the ‘Wild North’ expedition club, told local media: “This site was discovered by satellite images, it has perfect proportions and each side is almost one kilometre (0.62 miles).”
He said the sides of the pyramid are arranged to cardinal directions and that it resembles the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt despite being four times larger.
Svitov said: “There is no trace of human activity here, only bears, wolves, wolverines and lynxes.
“Some biologists explored the area in the 1980s, but the area was abandoned after the fall of the Soviet Union.”
Svitov explained that a team of scientists is being assembled with plans to travel to the site in the summer as there is no other way of accessing the remote location.
According to the Wild North club, the pyramid is 774 metres (2,540 feet) tall with each side measuring one kilometre (3,281 feet).
The Great Pyramid of Giza is 147 metres (482 feet) tall with each side measuring 230 metres (754 feet)
