Its population as of the 2010 Census was 1,148,[3][4] of whom 552 were male and 596 female, up from 1,051 recorded during the 2002 Census.[1]

Geography[edit]

The village is situated on the right bank of the Anabar River, shortly before it flows into the Laptev Sea.

History and demographics[edit]

The village was founded in 1930 as part of Soviet efforts to settle the nomadic indigenous inhabitants of the region. The village's name means White Mountain in the Yakut and Dolgan languages.

Yuryung-Khaya is the only settlement in the Sakha Republic with a population composed mainly of Dolgans, and also the only substantial population of Dolgans outside the Krasnoyarsk Kray.

Economy and infrastructure[edit]

The village economy is based around agriculture, specifically reindeer herding, fishing and other farming. It is reachable via a winter road leading upstream along the Anabar to Saskylakh.

Climate[edit]

Owing to the extreme northern location Yuryung-Khaya has a cold and dry polar climate (Köppen ET) with severely cold winters and cool summers.
