A friend of mine, Roman Sofronov, has just returned from his other scientific expedition into the wilderness of the Momsky National Park located in the North-East of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia). When they had a rest, they spent spare time on fishing on the Inyali River. Fascinating place. Ice is still there and it didn’t melt even in the summer. See Roman’s photographs.

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.

Hooray! May is at hand! It’s time for Yakutian men to hunt for ducks… Rumours went out. Some say that duck hunt might be prohibited due to games migrated from radiated Fukushima, Japan. Some say it will be allowed, but strongly recommended not to eat ducks. In any case, hunters will go out into the wildness and shoot their gamebirds.

Roman Sofronov is a Yakutsk-based fellow, who has his own YouTube channel with great videos displaying the life in Yakutia, the biggest Siberian|Russian region. He’s got great black-and-white 8mm home videos of children made in an ordinary Yakutian|Siberian village called Ytyk-Kyuel’ in the Soviet time. Fascinating flashbacks! Enjoy the history of Yakutia.
