This morning we start with an excursion to the Mammoth Museum. The collection of the museum contains more than 2000 bone remains of large mammoth animals. Here you can even see 3 fully restored skeletons of mammoths! You’ll get to know not only about our past of the Ice Age but also about our future with possible mammoth cloning.
After the Mammoth Museum, we will pay a visit to the Ice Gallery Eternal Frost Empire – a giant non-melting glacier near Yakutsk. At the end of the visit, you’ll be offered to get warm with traditional Russian vodka served in ice shots.
Today’s lunch will be at the ethnographic complex Chochur-Myraan which manages to reconstruct the past, to create a cozy atmosphere, and to surprise you with traditional Yakut cuisine. After lunch, we are going to visit Yakutia Treasury. The museum displays the best examples of the work of Jakut jewelers, and then gold nuggets, gems and diamonds found in Yakutia.
In the evening we will return to Yakutsk for dinner in the local restaurant and overnight at the hotel.
