AirVuz contributor and pilot Mayday Studio brings us this VERY impressive pro drone reel from the wide expanses of Siberian Russia.  The video opens with an excellent shot of the Tomsk, which is located on the Tom River and is considered the cultural capital of this vast region.  Then you'll be treated to some great shots of the towering Altai Mountains and the endless taiga, followed by some superb action shots involving motocross racers, ice drifting, and much more.   Expertly edited, it's well worth a watch.  

Ergaki National Park, Sayan Mountains


Ergaki National Park


With multiple Drone Video of the Week/Month wins to his name, DiamondSKy is one of the top content creators in the AirVuz community.  That should be reason enough to check out this stunning new piece he brings us from Russia's Ergaki National Park.  The park is located in the southwestern part of the Siberia region, in the Ergaki Mountains.  The tallest peak in the Ergaki range is Zvyozdniy, which has a summit elevation of about 2.1k meters above sea level or around 6.9k ft.  The Ergaki Mountains form part of the larger Sayan range.  

Lake Baikal


Lake Baikal in Winter


Prepare to be blown away by this stunning wintertime drone video of Russia's Lake Baikal, compliments of top AirVuz contributor and pilot Makhorov.  The great lake of southern Siberia is one of the earth's great ecological treasures: amongst freshwater lakes, it's the world's largest by water volume, its deepest, its oldest, and by some measures its clearest.   When you see these glorious wintertime views of Baikal from this award-winning content creator, you may also agree that it's the most beautiful.

Top contributor and former DVOW winner Makhorov brings us this stunning wintertime video of one of the most important cities in Asian Russia: Krasnoyarsk.  Capital of its namesake oblast, it's the third-largest city in Siberia after Novosibirsk and Omsk.  Founded as a border town on the banks of the Yenisei River in the early 17th century, it went on to become one of the most important junctions for the Trans-Siberian Railroad.   The video features some stunning dronelapses from the vapors visible in the frigid temperatures.  

Baikal's Giant Olkhon Island


Baikal Lake, Red Deer Escape!


Check out this stunning drone video from the largest island in Russia's giant Lake Baikal, compliments of multiple Drone Video of the Week Finalist CINEMADRONE.  Olkhon Island lies about midway down the long, narrow lake, which is the largest freshwater lake in the world by water volume.  The third-largest lake island in the world, Oikhon is about 72 km (around 44 mi.) by about 21 km wide (around 13 mi.) at its widest.  Largely covered in forests, the island has a permanent population of less than 2,000, largely aboriginal Buryats.  

The Altai Mountains


Altai Mountains


Several-time Drone Video of the Week Finalist Makhorov brings us this stunning drone video from Russia's Altai Mountains, home of some of the world's most remote and beautiful scenery.  The range, which runs through southern Siberia and also covers portions of China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan, has peaks as high as 4.5k meters above sea level (14.8k ft.).  Sparsely populated and studded with a number of giant lakes, the Altai's are famously difficult to access (particularly from within Russia) due to a lack of passes.    

Burlinskoye: Pink Lake in Altai Krai


Pink lakes. Bursol


Multiple Drone Video of the Week Winner Mahhorov brings us this stunning drone video of one of the virtually unknown natural wonders of Russia: a lake in southwestern Siberia which turns pink for a period each year.  Lake Burlinskoye is located near Bursol, in the province of Altai Krai.  The change of hue is due to the presence of micro-organisms in the lake, which is one of a number of lakes near the border with Kazakhstan which exhibit this phenomenon.  The pink phase generally lasts a few weeks in late summer. This video was a DVOW nominee in September 2020.

Novosibirsk is the facto business capital of Siberia, and Russia's third-largest city after Moscow and St. Petersburg.  A comparative infant by Russian standards, Novosibirsk was founded in 1893 as the crossing-point for the Trans-Siberian Railroad over the Ob River.   During Soviet times, the city became a major industrial center, with many factories relocated here following the Nazi invasion of the USSR in 1941.  In this fantastic dronelapse by Makharov, you'll be treated to some stunning aerial views of this very modern city.

Irkutsk, Historic Siberian City


Aerial Footage. Irkutsk (Russia)


Irkutsk is one of the most important cities in Russia's Siberia region, and one of the 25 largest cities in the country.  The city lies just north of the southern end of Lake Baikal, on the banks of the Angara River.  Founded in the 17th century, Irkutsk later became one of the principal cities to which those opposed to the Tsarist government of Imperial Russia were sent into exile.  In this excellent drone video by top contributor and pilot VadimUshKa, you'll get a bird's eye view of this historic Russian city. 

Frozen Lake Baikal


The Lake Baikal


Wait until you see this incredible aerial video of frozen Lake Baikal by contributor diamondsky. Lake Baikal is an ancient, massive lake in Siberia, Russia just north of the Mongolian border. The world's deepest and most voluminous lake, Baikal remains frozen for over a third of the year (usually between January to early May or June). In this video, he'll show us the frozen caves around the lake, a car driving across the ice, and the snow-covered mountains which surround parts of Baikal. This video was a DVOW finalist in December 2019.

Tomsk: Siberia's Oldest City


Moments of Tomsk

Mayday stu...

Mayday Studio brings us this beautiful drone video of Tomsk, an important city in Siberian Russia.  It's located in the western part of the region, and is the capital of the oblast (state) of the same name.  With a population of about a half million, Tomsk is one of the oldest cities in Siberia; its establishment in 1604 was one of the seminal events in the centuries-long process whereby Russia conquered the vast region.  Today, it's a major educational center, with six universities and over 100k students.

Flying along the Lena River


Siberian Flights: Along the Lena River


Contributor Adrianotrapani created this magnificent video from western Siberia in Russia.  It was shot in a district of the Irkust Oblast, which lies just to the west of Lake Baikal.  The video was shot along the Lena River, one of the three great rivers which drain Siberia into the Arctic Sea.  Drawing from the same watershed as Lake Baikal (the world's largest freshwater lake measured by water volume), the Lena runs over 4.3k mi. (almost 2.7k mi.), forming a giant delta north of the Arctic Circle.  

Droning the Altai Mountains


4K Altay Mountain August 2020


For a first upload to AirVuz, new contributor CINEMADRONE brings us these stunning drone views from Russia's Altai Mountains.  The graceful peaks of this range lie primarily in Russian Siberia but also cover portions of China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan.  The tallest of the Altais is Mt. Belukha, which has a summit elevation of just over 4.5k meters above sea level or around 14.8k ft.  The various valleys between the mountains have few passes between them, making this some of the most remote territory on earth.  

Dudinka, Krasnoyarsk Krai




Take in these fascinating aerial views from the far north of Russian Siberia, compliments of AirVuz contributor VadimUshKa. The video was filmed over and around the town of Dudinka, which lies on the banks of the Yenesei River in the province of Krasnoyarsk Krai.  The Yenesei is one of the three great waterways which drain the vast watersheds of Siberia into the Arctic Ocean.  The town of Dudinka came to prominence as the western terminus of the Norilsk Railway, once the northernmost line of Russia.  

Sheregesh: Ski Resort in Kemerovo


Sheregesh 2019 - snowboarding film


Sheregish is a municipality in the Russian oblast of Kemerovo, one of the southwestern provinces of the vast region known as Siberia. Once known primarily as an iron mining town (and named after the two brothers who made the first iron find), it's emerged as one of the top ski resort destinations in Russia.  Home to numerous groomed slopes, the area now attracts about a million visitors per year.  Seen here in this drone video by contributor alex_avdeev, Sheregesh lies on the slopes of Mount Zelenaya.

Trip to the Altai Mountains


A flashback to my trip all around Altai


Check out this stunning drone video of a mountainous region of Russian Siberia, compliments of content creator and pilot antonioxt5.  The video was filmed in the Altai Mountains, which lie at the very southernmost extent of Asian Russia near its borders with Kazakhstan and Mongolia.  Located southwest of Lake Baikhal, it's one of the most remote areas of Russia. The highest peak of the range is Belukha Mountain, with a peak elevation of about 4.5k meters or around 14.7k ft. above sea level.

The Berd River is an important waterway in Russia's Siberian region.  It is the right tributary of the Ob River, the world's seventh-longest and one of the three main rivers which drain Siberia northward into the Arctic Ocean (the other two being the Yenisei and Lena Rivers).  The Berd River's course runs for just over 350 km or around 225 mi.  In this drone video by ZURG, you'll get a bird's eye view of this important Siberian waterway, which originates in the highlands around the Altai Mountains.

Siberia's Rivers Thawing


Ice drifting in Siberia

Mayday stu...

Russia's Siberia region is vast, and large parts of it receive comparatively large amounts of precipitation - as much as 50 cm. or about 20 inches per year.  That's why three of the roughly two-dozen largest rivers in the world are in Siberia - the Amur, Ob, and Lena Rivers, all of which essentially exist to drain Siberia into the Arctic Ocean.  In this video by AirVuz contributor and drone pilot Mayday Studio, you'll see this process in action as peak drainage approaches with the coming of spring.  

Fall Colors on the Kazyr River


Река Казыр Кузнецкий Алатау Республика Хакасия


AirVuz contributor and pilot yuriylobachev brings us this excellent drone video from southern Siberia, Russia.  The video was shot during the height of the Fall colors season over the Kazyr River.  The waterway runs a bit under 400 km (around 240 mi.) through the Irkutsk Oblast and Krasnoyarsk Krai before joining with the Amyl River to form the Tuba River, a major right tributary of the Yenisey River.  The Yenisey is one of the three giant waterways which drain the vast watersheds of Siberia into the Arctic Ocean.  

Lake Baikal Drone Views



Air Cinema...

For a first upload to AirVuz, new contributor Air Cinema brings us this phenomenal aerial view of a frozen Lake Baikal in the Siberia region of Russia.  Baikal is what's known as a rift lake, formed by movements within the earth's crust.  This explains both the unusual rock formations around the lake's shoreline as well as its stupendous depth - up to 1.65k meters or about 5.4k ft., by far the world's deepest freshwater lake.  Frozen during the first 4-5 months of the year, the ice thickness reaches over 2 meters (nearly 7 ft.) in places.  

The Altai Republic


Altai Republic 2016-2021. Drone reel.


Check out this stunning drone video compilation from Russia's Altai Mountains, compliments of brand-new contributor and pilot 187video.  The video features highlights from over five years of footage shot over the Altai Republic, which lies along the country's southern border in its vast Siberia Federal District.  The republic is mostly covered by the Altai Mountains, a range which covers parts of Russia, China, Kazakhstan, and Mongolia.  It's some of the most remote territory on the Eurasian landmass.

Wintry Lake Baikal


Baikal from above 4K


Prepare to be blown away by these stunning wintertime views of Russia's Lake Baikal, compliments of AirVuz contributor and pilot sokolkola.  Situated in southern Siberia, the world's deepest lake (astoundingly) holds almost a quarter of the world's freshwater water supply - more than all of the North American Great Lakes combined.   Believed to be the world's oldest lake, Baikal is part of a great rift valley which is formed by the earth's crust being pulled apart.  During winter, its ice can be as much as 2 meters thick (over 6 ft.).  

Lake Baikal: World's Deepest Lake


Unforgettable Baikal


Prepare to be blown away by this collage of winter aerial views of Russia's Lake Baikal, compliments of top contributor and drone pilot  The video opens with an epic shot of some giant rock formations of this natural wonder in Siberia, the world's largest freshwater lake by water volume.  From there, you'll be taken over the frozen lake and its shoreline to see, among other things, some epic "drifting" action as well as an ice hovercraft (starting at about :50!).  This video won DVOW in May 2019.

Altai Mountains Drone Views


beautiful Altai


For a first upload to AirVuz, yuriylobachev brings us this stunning drone video from Altai Mountains in Siberian Russia.  Some of the earth's most remote territory, the Altai's are located near the country's southern borders with China, Mongolia, and Kazakhstan.  While they aren't quite as high as the Caucasus (the country's highest mountains), the Altai's are probably the most difficult to access; the lower of the two main passes into the range lies at an altitude of 2.8k meters above sea level or almost 9.3k ft.

Ice Road on Lake Baikal


Baikal Icy Road


Check out this beautiful drone video of a very frozen Lake Baikal in Siberian Russia, compliments of contributor  The lake is something of a natural wonder; due to its depth more than its surface area, it's the largest freshwater lake in the world by water volume - incredibly, nearly 25% of the world's surface freshwater is contained in this oblong-shaped lake in southern Siberia.  In the video, you'll see an ice road running to Olkhon Island, which lies along Baikal's western shore.  

Altai Mountains from Above

Aerial Action

Mayday stu...

Check out this impressive action reel by content creator and drone pilot Mayday Studio. The video was shot in various locations in Russia's Siberian region, mostly in and around the city of Tomsk - the oldest city in this vast area east of the Ural Mountains.  While the video features some beautiful landscape shots, what makes it so visually compelling are the action and people sequences.  These range from music concerts, mountain bike and off-road races, and even (near the end of the video) a shot of a powered hang-glider.
