Hi Cristian

it looks like you had no problems with the border zone. Was the post before Mugur Aksi not manned? For fetching the permit in Kyzyl, have you been able to apply directly to the tuvan...

When we were in Siberia, we had a strict behaviour while camping, because of bears.
At home we washed our tent and thereafter never ate something in the tent. We cooked 100 m away from the tent and...

That's an interesting thought, although when I went along the BAM I feared the opposite: that the BAM would be closed down (after all the investments done, this would not be easy to justify...

I definitely dropped a brick, but thanks for the ethymology, I like it (but usually in other languages).

Nonetheless, the region was awful in 2011, with nonstop rain and awesome in 2012 on a sunny...

When I would have to name the most beautiful spot on BAM, I would choose the region of the Leprindo lakes and the Kodar mountains. It is really awful, if you have the right weather there.

Hi Gale

The BAM will be as long ride-able as the railway continues to be serviced. There are usually two tracks, the old construction road and a track that leads directly along the rails. The latter is used...

Hi Walter

There is nothing too crazy, Russians wouldn't try.

Thank you Terry, but you knew it, we have met in Yakutsk, the first evening with Adrian.

Sorry, I didn't find neither anything useful with a quick google-search. As it is related to the BAM, I'll tell a bit, what I know of it.
The 110 is a so called simnik (winter road), that connects...

I would try first at the bridge (It's only 16 km detour in case). When I was there 27th of july, the guy even helped me pushing up to the bridge. So I think it depends on the guy in charge. I was...

Some bridges are guarded, I assume Vitim bridge is among the guarded ones. So they wouldn't let you over the bridge, you could probably take the elektritschka, which stops at Vitim and then get off...

When the river is that high and you are on a car, you should be conscious, that you might have to cross it twice (a german 4x4-driver wrote me recently about that experience in 2011).

Hi FechFech

trains on the BAM are not such a big problem, they are not so fast and you hear them usually far enough or see them.
I had only two encounters on a bridge, one was a kind of railbus...
