The Yenisey Range is a subrange of the Central Siberian Plateau. It is a relatively low range, cut across by swampy intermontane basins. The range stretches along the right bank of the Yenisey in the southwestern edge of the plateau, between the valley of the Kan River in the south and the Stony Tunguska in the north, beyond which rises the Tunguska Plateau.
The northern part of the range is the widest and has the highest elevations. The highest point of the range is 1,104 metres (3,622 ft) high Yenashimsky Polkan, located in the upper course of small rivers Yenashimo and Chirimba. Another high summit is 1,052 metres (3,451 ft) high Lysaya. The Angara River flows across the area of the range to join the Yenisey off its western slopes. The Big Pit River has its sources in the range.
