12 Forgotten North Land

Forgotten North Land

Posted on June 20, 2012 by team

We’ve already visited Baikit and Vanavara – places in Evenkia. Today Kuyumba village is going to meet us.

Once a week a helicopter flies here for people who want to get to the mainland.

In summer it’s cheaper and easier to get there by boat.

50 km is the distance till the nearest village. There are many lodges on the bank, hunters leave homes for some weeks or even months.

The population is about 150 people. There are a kindergarten, a school and a shop here. But there is no mobile connection.

Almost all locals go hunting or fishing, there are no jobs in Kuyumba in fact. Some of them are employed to oil wells nearby on a rotational basis.

The ship loaded with oil. “Black gold” is transported by river.

Filling station

There are 20 workers in the sawmill operators’ camp
