Take part in our expedition in the very heart of Russian Far-East !
This 10 days tour is divided into two parts and will give you an insight into yakutian nature jewels. First, we will spend 4 days in the rather inaccessible Verkhoyansk Mountains. Then, we will spend a few days in the Lena valley to discover the outstanding Lena Pillars - Unesco listed.
On the day of arrival, we will visit Yakutsk, the capital city of Sakha Republic (official name for Yakutia) located 450 South from Polar Circle.
On following day, we will fly with a AN-2 biplane to lake Ilderkey, located in the South part of Verkhoyansk Mountains. In summer, the lake is only accessible by air. After meeting with reindeer and horse herders, who are going to guide during those few days in the mountains, we will have a walk around the lake. We will spend the next two days on horseback with the herders to track local animals (mouflon, moose, brown bear) in order to photography them.
We will then fly back to Yakoutsk where we will spend the night before heading to Lena valley. We will go back in time, when Yakutia was covered with water which teem with life and much later on, during Neolithic times, when hominids settled on the shores of the Lena. We will go by boat until the impressive Lena Pillars, a natural rock formation along the banks of the Lena river. We will walk to their top in order to admire the beuatiful landscape.
Our last evening will be organised in Yakutsk ethnographic centre, where a festive dinner based on both Yakutian and Russian meals will be served.
