#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. A group of six people went to Taimyr on March 1 and covered several thousand kilometers during this time. At first, travelers moved along the Ob river to Yamal peninsula, from there along the winter road to Taimyr peninsula.
“The road is extremely difficult. In addition to the technical difficulties associated with pushing, digging and slipping, we note the absolute lack of information. Even during the preparation for the trip, we understood that clear information about the route could not be found. We were surprised that no one in the field has information. That is, people live and work on the winter road and know only what they see around them, and do not think about where the road leads, from where, for what purpose it is”, said the expedition leader Dmitry Yurochkin.
On two Toyota Prado cars, the team plans to reach Dikson, the northernmost settlement in Russia. Travelers have fuel, food, warm clothes and equipment with them.
In Dudinka, the expedition members first visited the Taimyr Museum of Local Lore. They got acquainted with the history of the peninsula, learned interesting facts about the indigenous peoples inhabiting Taimyr, studied the exposition in detail. The Sopkarga mammoth, which became famous all over the world, aroused special admiration among the expedition participants.
