An amazing expedition from Yakutia to the Taymyr Peninsula on passenger cars! The journey that has never been taken by anyone. 33 days and 5000 km to go. Risky and dangerous, in extremely severe north conditions, it could be only done by real men.
The expedition starts in Neryungri (the lowest in a chain red point) and heads for Norilsk.
The cars arrived to the start point by train and the crew – by airplane.
As we already mentioned, no one has ever done this on passenger cars. The only vehicles used in those north conditions are snowmobiles and Urals.
The crew is ready.
And the cars are prepared for the harsh conditions of the north.
An asphalt highway from Yakutsk to Mirny (“Peaceful”). An average speed is 100 km/h.
The road is sometimes straight, sometimes winding. The great taiga is all around.
Though it doesn’t look like Yakutia yet. At first glance, it resembles more the European North of Russia – the Arkhangelsk Region, or the Komi Republic.
Yakut horses can be often seen in these places. This semi-wild animal is as much unpretentious as the Kalashnikov rifle.
They can graze on their own during the whole year and even able to earn their living in 50-degree frost.
