In!! Looking forward to reading more!
I would love to get over there for some riding some day! My mother's family is from Moravia and her father always said his family was White Russian, so I'm guessing from Ukraine, or nearby. Keep the report coming, and I would be very happy to be able to communicate in any second language as well as you do in English!
Can’t wait for more!
Not OP but his videos are up on YouTube
White Russia is another name for Belarus.
You sir are my new hero.
Mr Colebatch had some great rides in this region.
Dear friends! Thank you for your comments and likes. I have already said that I will fully edit the film later with an English translation. For my English-speaking friends. You can use the information from the movie for your future travels. I think the borders will open soon and the pandemic will subside.
So let's continue! After the city of Neryungri (56.660218, 124.721251)
I headed towards the capital of the Sakha Republic - the city of Yakutsk.
Yakutsk is a big city. It has 300,000 inhabitants. For remote areas of Siberia, this is a big city.
Yakutsk is located on the other Bank of the Lena river . The river is very large and full-flowing. There is a ferry across the river(61.973906, 129.905432). The ferry ride takes 1 hour each way. There is a lot of sand at the ferry entrance.
Yakutsk is a beautiful city with many shops, gas stations and much more.
I visited a restaurant of national Yakut cuisine here and highly recommend it (62.041038, 129.623661).
there is a good Museum about Yakutia
I spent a day and a night in Yakutsk. The next morning I went to the road of bones. This is 2,050 km of dirt road.
Kolyma highway , road number R-504, or the old name "road of bones" the road has such a name that most of this road was built by prisoners during the reign of Stalin in the 1930s and 1950s
More than 2000 kilometers of dirt roads. There are very few gas stations here.
The villages are far from each other. The average distance between villages is 200-300 km.
I went out on the Kolyma road and immediately got into the sand.
After that, I found out that the road is still 150 km with sand
around the swamp and a huge number of mosquitoes
With difficulty, I drove these 150 km on the sand. Locals drive four-wheel-drive cars and raise dust, which adds to the complexity
Deep sand road to the village of Churapcha(61.986217, 132.441412). There is a gas station in Churapcha.
I advise you not to go to the village, the local population is not very friendly and hospitable in Churapcha. I quickly refueled and drove on. This applies only to this area
near the village of Ytyk-Kuel(62.344265, 133.534098) there is a monument to the Yakut hero - rider.
In the middle of swamps and taiga. Very beautiful.
After taking a few pictures, I drove on. The day was drawing to a close.
I was 150 km from the ferry crossing over the Aldan river.
On the way, I stopped at a cafe. Now they look like this.
to be continued
My route is available via the SPOT satellite tracker via the link , or link2 Dates from 10.07.2020 to 25.08.2020. Choose in history
That road looks like a nightmare on a loaded big bike. Congratulations on surviving it! 'Waiting on the next report installment!
