Reindeer races: All roads lead to Khatystyr

The Evenks are a small people, who live in a few villages scattered across Yakutia's endless snowy plains and whose existence largely depends on reindeer breeding. Their community is based on mutual aid: if they see a car stuck in the snow they help pull it out, if a sick reindeer needs medicine, they go hundreds of miles through the impassable virgin land to save them and the beautiful creatures pay the people back with their vital services.
