3 Tiksi, Severe Northern Oasis

Tiksi, Severe Northern Oasis

Posted on March 28, 2016 by team

Blogger Ivan Dementievsky has had a long trip this March, Tiksi (Yakutia, Russia) was the final destination. He came there at night and could not see much, but high snow. At dawn he found out how vast, devastated and lonely the snowy place looked like.

It is strange to see these houses abandoned. Some are still on sale but probably noone will prevent you from settling there for free.

Some snowdrifts are phenomenally high, at least it’s fun for children – they slide down joyfully.

Tiksi is divided into at least two parts, the remote one at the airport has a wonderful pillar signpost with different cities and distances to them.

You can imagine the blizzards here, they may last for a couple of weeks. Perhaps, after all the town is fully covered with snow.

There are several big streets in Tiksi. The central one has some wood houses – their windows nailed up but snow is getting inside through the small holes anywhere. It seems the town could be a wonderful movie set. However it’s hardly possible, as Tiksi is situated on the borderland.

Aiport building.
