Road of Bones and the Kolyma Track - Pure Photos

This is one part of a multi thread ride report ... posted in a random order ... like Pulp Fiction meets Adventure motorcycling. Only when all the parts are together will it all make sense and tie in!

This thread is preceded by a report on riding from Irkutsk due North to Udachny and then across the never before ridden Vilyuisky Trakt between Mirny and Yakutsk.

Downtown Yakutsk:

Permafrost caves ... We took the chance to visit some permafrost tunnels in the side of a hill just on the edge of Yakutsk. Its 33 C (about 90F) outside, and its -20C (about 0F) inside the hill. Permafrost in Yakutsk is just a few metres beneath the Earth's surface, and the easiest way to get into it is not to go down, but just to tunnel into the side of a hill. This is the entrance on one such tunnel.


5 metres and 3 insulation doors later, and you have this:


This one is the ICE BAR:


And this one is the ICE OFFICE
