I am so glad that Roman Sofronov (aka. Taramaan) helps me a lot with the eYakutia blog content. Previously, he let me publish his own awesome archive videos. All his posts came and will come under this tag.
In July 2011, Roman participated in a geobotanical scientific expedition to the area of Mus-Khaya Mountain in Yakutia, Siberia/Russia, and he brought a lot of pics. Find some of them further.
Mus-Khaya Mountain is the highest ice-covered summit of Suntar-Khayata Range. The mountain elevation is 2,959 m. Located 485 km to the south of Arctic Circle and 135 km to the southwest of Oymyakon.
There is no road from Teply Klyuch to Mus Khaya. So, scientists rented an all-terrain vehicle. Damaged soil a little, but, as Roman says, it was done for the sake of the science.
The final route was Yakutsk — Teply Klyuch — Agayakan River — Nyukula River — Kongor River — Knorij River and way back.
Ok. Enjoy Yakutia pictures.
