Synopsis: “Gora Pobeda“ is known to be very difficult to ascend, not because it’s a steep rocky and icy peak but because it is so far out of reach. The nearest village with road access, UST NERA, is more than 350km away. The nearest helicopter and hospital is 1300km away in Yakutsk. It is also one of the coldest regions in the world. The temperature usually drops down to below minus 60C during the long arctic winter. Due to extreme continental climate, short hot summers follow immediately after the long cold winter.

The window of time to ascend and descend the mountain is therefore very small. Since no one has ever attempted to do this, not much is known about the best time of year to try, and if it’s even possible. Without helicopter support it seems impossible to reach the mountain range or the highest peak with all the equipment the small team carries with them for filming. Having only the cameramen, Johannes and Moritz and the photographer Jonas with them, it seems seems like an impossible feat. A Family of Nomads living aside the mountain range is their only hope. They might be able to help them come closer to the mountains…
