At the very edge of the Earth, where snow and wind dictate the rules to travelers, there is a beautiful and mysterious Yakutia. For many years travelers have been trying to unravel its secrets and conquer the imperious local nature. This snowy land is amazing with its natural riches - majestic forests, endless tundra and rich deep rivers.
What to expect
Yakutia can truly be proud of its water wealth. Each river is surrounded by its legends and has its own unique character. So, Lena has a severe and capricious disposition behind which a generous and hospitable beauty hides. But the beautiful Buotama, on the contrary, is restrained and flexible. It is the right tributary of Lena and adequately carries in its waters its strength and power.
Buotama strikes with its incredible grandeur, because it contains the power of 60 mountain rivers. She has a calm and flexible nature, ideal for family recreation, leisurely rafting and gambling. Like a narrow satin ribbon, it encircles the northern territories, enveloping them in an atmosphere of fresh water and harmony.
From Yakutsk the name of the river is translated as a meadow pendulum. This grass fills the coast with an amazing atmosphere of harmony and purity, along the coast you can find a lot of sardines (Daurian lily). Going on a trip along the river, you can enjoy its delightful beauty. Majestic pine forests fill the air on the coast with the noble smell of pine resin and spruce cones, bird cherry complements with light sweetness, and thickets of forest grasses complete the composition with a dizzying scent of natural bliss.
The river is shrouded in many ancient legends and preserves the history of local peoples. In ancient times, its banks were home to primitive nomads, who survived only by hunting for mammoths. Everyone who goes to rafting on the river, will be able to visit the unique bison nursery, created on its coast in 2006, to restore the population of these ancient animals in the Yakut taiga.
Rafting along the river Buotama is an amazing opportunity to admire the delightful beauty of Yakutia, to reveal the secrets of its majestic nature and simply enjoy the amazing atmosphere of natural harmony and incredible water charm.
