The famous traveler from Salekhard Aleksey Korotkov worked out a new route on rivers of Siberia “The way of Yermak”.
The expedition is calculated for 4 years. In summer it will go on territory of Nizhny Novgorod region and the Republic of Chuvash. He plans to move on the rivers Pyana and Sura by rubber boat. As we should note, on the first of September it is the 435th anniversary of the campaign of the legendary ataman Yermak, who conquered Siberia for the Russian state.

With him the traveler will take food products and a tent in order not to spend money for hotels. He says that he is not afraid of any difficulties and believes than nothing bad will happen to him. According to his words, practice of two past travels shows that there are many good and kind people, who can help.
The traveler from Yamal considers that it will be an interesting expedition. He plans stops in populated areas, meetings with local inhabitants.
