BBC published the 6th episode of the “Last Man Standing” tv show on YouTube. This part is dedicated to the long distance race over frozen wastelands in Siberia’s Kamchatka.
Slow-motion video with clouds over Olkhon Island at Lake Baikal in Siberia, Russia. Pretty relaxing. And nature is awesome!
“A behind the scenes look at my trip to Chukotka, Russia. I was traveling around Chukotka starting with Anadyr (capital of Chukotka) and into the very deep Tundra where nobody lives except small tribal groups of reindeer herders, staying and photographing them in their everyday life, and it was a life changing experience.” (c) Sasha Leahovcenco.
After two-year exploration of Siberian roads by a BMW motorcycle, Walter Colebatch has finally released the DVD with his Sibirsky Extreme Project video stories.
If you are an adventure motorcyclist, you must know Walter Colebatch, you might meet him in Horizon Unlimited events or see his highly-discussed threads at AdvRider.com, the world’s best motorcyclist forum.
If not, here is a prompt answer. He was that Australian-British motorcyclist, who said three years ago, Yes, it is possible to bike solo through Siberia and even make it to Magadan through the Road of Bones. It was him, who explorered the BAM road, Vilyuisky Trakt (West Yakutia) and the old Road of Bones (East Yakutia)… and, yeah, he was a guy, who succeeded in getting to the Arctic Circle in Siberia (read ‘Yakutia’). Thanks to him, SIberia is full of international adventure motorcyclists.
All has been said in the title. Three guys, John Dunn, Ryan Albrey and Kirill Ivoutin, are currently biking on two Russian URAL motorcycles with a sidecar across three big countries – Kazakhstan, Mongolia, and Russia (Siberia & the Far East). In short, Unreal Adventure. That’s how their expedition is called!
Follow the Unreal Adventure on their website.
Oisin Hughes is a BMW motor biker from Dublin, Ireland. For a few years, he was riding a BMW motorcycle around the world through 27 countries and over 40,000 miles.
Last summer he visited Yakutsk, my city, and continued his journey to Magadan via the famous Kolyma Highway and then to Vladivostok, South Korea, Canada, USA and back home to Ireland.
Recently, he has completed his e-book “Not Dead Yet.” Its Kindle Edition is now available on Amazon. Apart from it, he uploaded a series of videos to accompany the book.
Above you can watch one of them dedicated to the start of his Road of Bones biking… Hmmm, in the presented video, you can see me. In reality, when I have good hair cut, I look much better… :)))
Indeed, what is the best season to visit Lake Baikal? It is a beautiful and interesting place to visit in any season! No doubts.
Check the post dedicated to this topic at AskBaikal.com. Saying thanks to Yulia and Pavel from the BaikalNature company, that provided me with fascinating pictures, links to videos and useful information on activity and weather pecularities.
Not sure, if I will be able to use Baikal Nature‘s service, but this Irkutsk-based travel company is pretty active on YouTube. As of today, it has uploaded 93 videos and all of them are dedicated to its Majesty Lake Baikal. Awesome pieces they’ve got.

Here is how Baikal Amur Mainline does look. In the video, you can see also images of its history and interviews of those people, who participated in its construction.
What is Baikal Amur Mainline? It is considered to be one of the longest rail lines in the world. Its total length is 4287 km. Stretches across Siberia and Russia’s Far East, precisely from the city of Taishet (Irkutsk Oblast), via the northern area of Lake Baikal to Vladivostok.
The main part Taishet – Sovetskaya Gavan (the Soviet Habour) had being constructed from 1938 to 1984. The hardest one, Severomuysky Tunnel, was completed by 2003 only. This tunnel is depicted in the begining of the footage.
Not really. The viral video with the Alien found dead in Russia’s Siberian region of Buryatia appeared to be fake.
The video was uploaded on YouTube on April 17th, 2011. Hard to say how many views it gathered, but it became really viral and sensation.
Buryatua’s authority got interested and gave the order to find the dead alien. Police identified the video author’s email and address. Arrivied at his place and asked, where the body was. A YouTuber got dumb and pointed at a small doll of the Alien, that he made himself out of dough and hen skin.
It was ascertained that two friends put the doll on the snow in forest, recorded it as a finding and uploaded it on the web. In a few days, a district officer recognized one of teenagers in the video.
Two teenagers appeared to be 18-year Timur Khilaev and 19-year Kirill Vlasov, who live in the village of Kamensk in Buryatia, Russia. Police couldn’t do anything with these guys, because there wasn’t corpus delicti. It was just a joke.
