The article presents and summarizes the results of a field research on glacial relief of the Gornaya Shoria mountain region, within the Patyn mountain massif. The Patyn-2017 expedition was organized by the Russian Geographic Society. This region has been very poorly studied in the paleogeographical aspect. The available material can give only an approximate assessment of last glaciation in the Gornaya Shoria mountain region. The massif of Mount Patyn (1630 m) is located in the extreme north-east of the Mountain Shoria on the watershed of the Tashtyk and the Mrassu rivers. At present, the massif is completely devoid of modern glaciation. Early summer snowfields appear on the leeward slopes of the eastern, southern and northern macroslopes. The moraine deposits and the configuration of the relief forms have proved mountain-valley glaciation in the Late Pleistocene. The article also touches upon the issue of the origin of the so-called «megaliths» of the massif of Pustag mountain.
