Far East Russia is a world apart from the country’s west – almost literally, lying thousands of miles and many time zones away from it. A huge area with rugged mountains and spectacular Pacific Ocean coastline, Far East Russia borders China and North Korea on its south and nearly touches the United States to the northeast. Cities like Vladivostok and Khabarovsk are here, but the glorious natural wonders (like the volcanoes and national parks of the Kamchatka Peninsula) are what draw many.

I wouldn't write another enthusiastic review but would rather mention a couple of moments that might be useful for newcomers to take account of. Me and my wife visited the place during our Lena cruise and would definitely return time and again if it were possible. Still, since there are so many places to see on Planet Earth, we'd hardly repeat it in future. Anyhow, we enjoyed every moment of our stay there - the climb, the summit, the views, voodoos, etc., etc., etc. Still, for those who plan to visit this fabulous miracle of Mother Nature the following remarks might be instrumental: 1. Mosquito headnet. Repellents do scare mosquitos away but they are helpless against gnat. Therefore, to have such net at least in your backpack would be a good idea. Summers may be quite hot in Yakutia so you may feel like in a sauna with such a "hat" on but at least you'd have a choice - to fight stuffiness or to suffer from these omnipresent tiny devils. 2. Start your climbing either to be the very first on top or - preferably - the very last. The area up there is not very large so do bear in mind that you may easily find yourself like in a subway car in rush-hours and nice photo opportunities may be scarce. The flip side of it may be that you might lose a chance to take part in a voodoo rituals organizers stage right after landing but, again, it's your choice. 3. Please be VERY cautious when on top. It may be slippery there even in dry weather, wooden railings are not the most reliable in the world - to say the least - no guards on duty are available and stunning panoramas may take your breath - and mind - away so an accident is something one must not forget about. Moreover, people behave there rather wildly, fighting for an optimal place to take pictures and selfies and all this only aggravates the situation. (This is another reason to come there either the first or the last.) Nevertheless, if you follow these simple rules you'll be absolutely awestruck by the place. And safe. As we were.
