Oymyakon, the Pole of Cold in the summertime (optional)

Oymyakon is the coldest inhabited village on Earth. It’s often named the Pole of Cold. In summer, we would rather call it the hottest place in Yakutia, Russia’s Siberia.

We are often asked to add Oymyakon in the itinerary. So, we did this time as well. See the related option of the Kolyma road trip below.

Dneprovsky GULAG Camp in Magadan Oblast

Dneprovsky is one of Dalstroy’s many GULAG camps in Magadan Oblast. Stands a little bit off the M56 Kolyma Highway between Susuman and Magadan. Big relatively. With well-remained buildings to see during the visit.

A track to Dneprovsky is passible, if weather is perfect and there were no heavy rains.

Butugychag GULAG Camp in Magadan Oblast (optional)

Butugychag is the horrible GALAG’s Labor Camp existed in Magadan Oblast from 1945 till 1955. Mostly known for its deadly uranium mines.

On request, we can visit this site, but we would need to have one extra day and drive from Susuman to Magadan through Ust Omchug (overnight) as well as additional expenses for a guide to show a trek.
