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.

This thread is followed by a report on riding what I consider to be the toughest adventure road in the world, the 4300 km long BAM Road between Vanino and Bratsk. http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=533442

Downtown Yakutsk:


The girls of Yakutsk - after a lot of time in the wilderness, they are a refreshing sight


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
