The Suntar-Hayata mountain range 2005

Oimyakonskoe tableland, the Suntar-Hayata mountain range, the Udoma river. It looks like just enumeration of some geographical objects, doesn’t it? But it is a route of a difficult photo expedition. The Suntar mountain range, stretched out in the areas of the south-east part of Yakutia and the north-west part of the Khabarovsk Territory, drew my attention long ago. When you look at the map, you can notice that the Suntar-Khayata stands out among surrounding mountains for its height and iced tops. Besides it is situated near Kolymskaya road, which makes it possible to visit this area. But the final decision to visit this region I took after watching some photos in Internet, when I was impressed by coloured mountains. This wasn’t an expedition on my own, I was accompanied by a friend Viktor Proskurko from Vladikavkaz. The trip began from shuttling the weight of 180 kilograms upwards the Suntar valley. It lasted for one month, because we had to carry it over 120 kilometres. Nevertheless the main objective was not power lifting, but creation, that why we had lots of stops. Thus we climbed to the Suntar sources, and then passed to the Khabarovsk Territory, where the Udoma river beginnings are situated. In this part the river is called Nitkan. It turned to be the most beautiful part of our route. Then we reached places where water was sufficient, built up the catamaran and get down the river 600 kilometres to the first settlement, which is named Yugoryonok. We managed to visit that wonderful place, watch variegated mountains and get back. During two months we had had only two meetings with the Evens. Now I have the opportunity to share everything watched with those who are interested. You can read about this trip in details in the article “Travel in coloured mountains”.
