Рассказ по-русски

English narrative

24-Jun-2006 -- We visited the point 62N 129E, in a group of 5 people by walking 5 km from the road from Yakutsk to Berdigestiakh (Viluysk) (42 km from Yakutsk). Quite close to the city, 42 km on the highway to Viluysk. Then through a clearing down on the left, and 5 kilometers through a glade. As a reference point, in the beginning of the glade stands a geodetic tower. There are 3 bogs on the road, so it is better on foot. The mosquitoes are by themselves.

Рассказ по-русски

24-Jun-2006 -- Совсем недалеко от города, всего на 42 км по Вилюйскому тракту. Потом на вырубке налево, и по просеке 5 километров. как ориентир - в начале просеки стоит геодезическая башня. 3 болота на дороге, так что лучше пешком. Комары само собой.
