Cape Dezhnev - Asia's easternmost point

Cape Dezhnev - Asia's easternmost point

Cape Dezhnev - Asia's easternmost point

A high rocky promontory chairs this place located between the Bering and Chukchi seas. Across the narrow strait, only 82 km / 51 mi, is the westernmost end of North America: Cape Prince of Wales.

Cape Dezhnev also marks the maximum width of Asia in the east, being separated 10,050 km / 6,245 mi from the one that marks the western end (Cape Baba in Turkey).

Lakes and marshes framed by expanses of land that drop into the sea and reach heights of more than 800 m / 2625 ft, offer a peculiar landscape.

What else is there
The only village in the area is named Uelen. It is located very close to the Arctic Circle and has a population of some 700. Its inhabitants are engaged in hunting mammals: seals, whales and walruses. It is particularly known for the treatment of ivory of the latter, with a workshop and a museum in which art speaks for itself of the ancestral wisdom of these wise and serene people.

Notes
If you cross the Bering Strait you conquer another MOSTPOINT: Cape Prince of Wales, the westernmost point of North America. Also, located midway both MOSTPOINTS, runs the International Date Change Line. Three MOSTPOINTS in one go. Feel like it? Steve Burgess and his team got them aboard a Land Rover Defender in 2008. Also a team of 65 swimmers from 17 different countries who crossed the Strait swimming in turns of 10 minutes in 2013 with water temperatures as low as 2° C. Another way to conquer these MOSTPOINTS indeed.
