The 6-kilometer-wide ring looks like an impact crater, or the caldera of an extinct volcano, but it is neither. The Kondyor Massif in eastern Siberia (Coordinates: 57°35'N, 134°40'E) was formed by the intrusion of igneous, or volcanic, rock that pushed up through overlying layers of sedimentary rock, some of them laid down more than a billion years ago. Kondyor (also spelled Konder) Massif interests geologists not just because of its unusual appearance, but also because of its mineral richness. Among the highly valued minerals at this site are gold, silver, and platinum.

Yeh, it does look like a road and the colours also suggest that there could be a village or town in the valley - But alas, no name
