Located on the east coast of the far north of the SakhalinIsland, in Russia, the road linking Okha and Nogliki is an amazing journey.
The road, called 64H-1, is 226 km long. It’s mostly asphalted, with gravel sections. This track can get very muddy and slippery after rain making it challenging to get through. During and after a storm the road may be impassable, even with a four-wheel-drive vehicle.
The road links Okha, the administrative center of Okhinsky District of Sakhalin Oblast and Nogliki, the administrative center of Nogliksky District of Sakhalin Oblast. Do not travel this pass in severe weather conditions. Avalanches, heavy snowfalls and landslides can occur anytime, being extremely dangerous due to frequent patches of ice. The climate is harsh subarctic, with long, very cold winters only marginally moderated by the ocean and very cool, short summers. The road is really remote.
