“The Republic of Sakha or Yakutia is a federal district in the Far East of Russia. Its territory is larger than Argentina and just smaller than India and covers an area of 3,287,590 square kilometers (1,269,350 sq mi). Sakha stretches to the Henrietta Island in the far north and is washed by the Laptev and Eastern Siberian Seas of the Arctic Ocean. These waters, the coldest and iciest of all seas in the northern hemisphere, are covered by ice for 9–10 months of the year. There are over 800,000 lakes in Yakutia and three main mountain ranges. Yakutia is known for its climate extremes, with the Verkhoyansk Range being the coldest area in the northern hemisphere.

Seven peace vases were planted in different parts of Yakutia in the most spiritually, naturally and culturally important places, including the holy Chochur Muran mountain, “Lenskiye stolby” National Park and Lena river.”
