The Rauchuagytgyn Lake in Chukotka
At the Baimka River (Western Chukotka)
After a long break I was able to work in Chukotka – this time in its western part.
The famous and mysterious Elgygytgyn Lake you can find at the north-eastern tip of Asia, at the 68 degrees North, near the divide between the Arctic Ocean and the Pacific (Bering Sea). In the lake there are unique, endemic fish which you can not find anywhere else.
