Settlement by the river

Relatives of our guide Karill settle temporarily by the Yuribey river. The tribe manage over 2,000 reindeer and are preparing to cross the Yuribey river from South to North. The migration over the river is only possible at certain points of the year as the water level rises with the summer melt. Migrating on the peninsula is becoming trickier for the herders as the climate gets warmer.
