Sakhalin Oblast

Flanking the Pacific coastline of the Russian Far East, Sakhalin Oblast includes Sakhalin Island and the sparsely populated Kuril Islands, whose pristine nature features the same wildlife native to Japan. The area has long been the site of political struggles between the major Asian powers, and the status of the Kuril Islands remains uncertain even today. Freedom of movement for international travelers is considerably limited since the entire Sakhalin Oblast is considered a border zone. Still, clear seawaters swarming with fish, swift rivers, magnificent waterfalls, thermal springs, lush forests, and alpine mountain slopes attract eco-tourism explorers and extreme-sports enthusiasts. The area provides many opportunities for diving, hunting, fishing, snowboarding, and skiing. Obviously, the exotic journey to the Far East would not be complete without visiting the World's End, one of the capes on Shikotan Island. Sakhalin Oblast is in Far Eastern District. Use our custom trip planner: Sakhalin Oblast and all its delights await.
