4 On the Land of Herders

On the Land of Herders

Posted on September 28, 2012 by team

It’s the herders’ camp in Krasnoselkup village in the Yamalo-Nents Autonomous District of Russia. This place is often called “the region of untold fur wealth”.  We are going to see now how real herders live and work.

Mi-8T is loaded with necessary stuff for the camp.

There are no usual roads here, only winter roads which can be used only in winter.

These are abandoned heliports.

The girl is ready to meet mosquitoes.

This YAK-40 has been working in the region since 2011.

The village appeared in 1933. In the 90s it was undergoing hard times but today it experiences its reborn. It is being widely reconstructed and restored.

A new school has been built, a new pipeline is being pulled.

    Brilliant, brilliant photos. The school design, the kids skinning deer, the camp in the middle of nowhere (and the airport). Love this sort of stuff.
