Mount Narodnaya (also known as Naroda and Poznurr; Russian: Гора Наро'дная, Гора На'родная, На'рода-Из, meaning People's Mountain), located in the Research Range, is the highest peak of the Urals in Russia. Its elevation is 1,895 metres (6,217 ft). It is in Khanty-Mansi Autonomous Okrug in Tyumen Oblast, 0.5 km to east from the border of Komi Republic.
It is the highest point in European Russia outside the Caucasus. This leads to its large topographic prominence of 1,772 metres (5,814 ft), with its key saddle being in Kazakhstan.
Narodnaya is located in the Ural mountains water divide, and therefore on the border between Europe and Asia: the Naroda river flows south-east from the summit into the Ob river in Siberia, and the Kos'yu river flows north-west from the summit into the Pechora river in Europe.
The mountain is formed with quartzites and metamorphosed slates of the Proterozoic and Cambrian eras. There are some glaciers on the mountain. Also, there are sparse forests of larch and birch in the deep valleys at the foot of the mountain. The slopes of the mountain are covered with highland tundra.
The easiest route to the summit is a technically easy hike on the moderate north-west slope. Depending on snow and ice conditions, crampons may be required. The south wall of Narodnaya is steep and has not been climbed.
