Labynkyr 2010

Photo expedition to lake Labynkyr was ordered by the Publishing house under support of Administration in Oimyakonsky region of Yakutia republic.
 Lake Labynkyr is famous not only in Yakutia, but also widely out of its territories. The reason for this fact is the legend about the lake. There are many testimonies about a huge creature unknown to science living in the lake (somebody like Loch Ness monster). Sometimes people call the creature as Labynkyrsky devil. But this theme was not in scope of the expedition. The only objection of it was photo shooting of local landscapes.
 Lake Labynkyr is located in the south-eastern part of Yakutia on the Oimyakon upland. The river with the same name enters the lake and runs out of it. The river Labynkyr takes its beginnings of the mountain range Suntar-Khayata, and is one of sources for the river Indigirka. The length of lake Labynkyr is 15 km, and the width is 4 km.
 In spite of its fame the lake if hardly to be reached. The nearest human settlement is village Tomtor, 100 km to the North. From Tomtor I travelled by horses for two days. Then the local horse breeder and my guide Alexander Dyagilev turned back.
 Then the work in its usual style started, i.e. on my own, one on one with nature. The total length of the expedition was 40 days, 35 days of which were full of persistent loneliness, without any connections with the "outside" world.
 Photographic explorations were conducted not only on the lake itself and its outskirts. I travelled the route to the beginnings of the river Labynkyr, where Lake Vodorazdel'noe is localed on the bounds with Khabarovsky region. This lake is 50 km to the south from Lake Labynkyr.
 You can find more information about the expedition in the story "One on one with Lake Labynkyr".
