Phototour «Lake of Jack London». August 2017

25 августа 2017 г. — 10 сентября 2017 г.

Currently to reach the lake of Jack London alone is impossible, since the time that flood demolished the bridge over the river Debin, through which you need to go on this lake. But you can reach it by the car URAL across the river Debin to the lake Dancing Harious, which is included in the group of the lakes of Jack London. Also there is a camping. Time of our phototour is chosen so that autumn will be in full swing.


Day 1 (25th August) I will meet in Magadan aircraft flown with participants of our phototour. Then we will reach the bridge by minibus (it is about 8-10 hours to drive). We will spend the night in the tents near the river.

Day 2 (26th of August) we will drive 5-6 hours to reach the lake Jack London by the car URAL and we will stop on the high coast of the lake, where we will have evening and morning shootings. After we will spend night in tents.

Day 3 (27th of August) we will reach the plateau, where are situated lakes Dream, Anemon and Gray Gull. Also we will have evening and morning shootings.

Day 4 (28th of August) we will get down the lake (it is about 700 meters to get there and it is important to bring there all products, boats and etc.) and we will wend our way in the one of the bays of the lake (where we also will have evening and morning shootings). Sometimes there is fog at the break of the day. We will spend at this place two days.

31th of August we will direct our steps to the upper reaches of the creek Nevedomij. This day will be the most difficult, because our travel time on foot will take around 5 hours. We will stop on the highest points to have evening and morning shootings.

1th of September we will continue our tour (about 8 km to go) and we will set up a camp in the upper reacges of the creek Nevedomij. There are many beautiful places where we will have shootings. You will see «Pila» which is a most amazing object of the mountain range Bolshoj Anngachak. We will spend here two days.

3nd–4th of September we will go down the stream Nevedomij and spend night. After we will reach the lake Nevidimka. The easiest day because it is about 1 hour to go there. We will spend here two days. This lake is extremely picturesque. We will go upper to the plateau with stunning views on the lake Jack London, lake Nevidimka and creek Nevedomij.

Day 11 (7th of September) we will get back by boats to the start of the lake where we begun our tour.

Next day, 8th of September, we will leave these beautiful places, pass the river Derbin and get back to Magadan by minibus. We will arrive in Magadan at night (9th of September), spend night in the hotel. You will have some time to visit most popular and beautiful places in Magadan next day and we will fly back to Moscow (10th of September).
