Very exciting and even dangerous trip along Kolyma. Wild nature and animals are the only residents of those places.
The trip begins in Magadan. Very soon an asphalted road will end.
Beautiful scenery – knolls, elfin wood, pitted valleys resembling the surface of the Moon.
Stop for a night at a former Myakit village. Today its only resident, an old man, rents this place to exhausted drivers in exchange for “liquid currency”. There are also 2 houses of other former residents who still come here sometimes (usually in summer) to pick up mushrooms and berries.
When the old man is drunk he gets angry and threatens to shoot everybody down. He does have a gun. So the neighbors usually padlock him in his house.
Repairing one of the truck details.
The residents tell there lives a bear near the village. His traces are often found but nobody has ever seen it yet.
A Cold village. Spending night in the tent.
Two guys from the Moscow Region also travelling along these places.
The next stop is a former Kadykchan village. This is where the other world begins where you can hardly find a single car. Only nature and solitude.
Wading across the river, pulling up a tent and making a fire.
Suddenly roaring motors sounded in the distance. Two trucks were carrying wagons to a new mine.
