Lena Highway

A journey on the legendary Lena Highway

A360 Lena Highway is an unforgettable journey in the heart of the Sakha Republic (Yakutia) in Russia.

Formerly known as M56, the A360 Lena Highway (also known as Amur-Yakutsk Highway) is a mostly paved road located south of the Arctic Circle. Until 2014 the road was largely impassible after raining and was infamous for the extreme amounts of mud. In the summer, with any kind of significant rain, the road transformed to impassable mud that often swallowed whole smaller vehicles. After being paved in 2014, the road is now accessible all throughout the year.

Built between 1925 and 1964, the road is 1.132 km (703 miles) long, running south-north from Never (in Neversky Selsoviet of Skovorodinsky District, Amur Oblast) to Yakutsk, a Russian port city on the Lena River, capital of the Sakha Republic. Yakutsk is also the largest city built on continuous permafrost. Most houses are built on concrete piles because of the frozen ground. The highway takes its name from the Lena River. The last part of the road, from Nizhny Bestyakh to the port city of Yakutsk, on the west side of the Lena river, is via the Lena River Ice Road.
