Reserve "Bastak"
August 22, 2016 23:54


Reserve "Bastak" was created in 1996 on the territory of Razdolnenskiy forest in the Jewish Autonomous Region, north from Birobidzhan and up to the border with Autonomous Region of Khabarovsk region of Khabarovsk Territory.

In 2003, land reserve "Zabelinskii" was joined to it, and today the reserve consists of two separate reserves. The area of nature reserve is relatively small, but it is one-fifth of the entire area of the Autonomous Region. Bastak is the name of the largest river, washing the protected lands.

The purpose of the reserve is to conserve the biodiversity of forests of Northern Amur region. It is a transition zone from the Khingan-Bureya mountain system to the Sredneamurskaya lowland: the north and northwest of the reserve is represented by the mountains, the southern and south-eastern part is represented by the plain.

The highest peak is Mount Bydyr (1208 m). The educational nature trail of 30 km motorway "Birobidzhan - Kukan" is equipped for the tourists in the reserve: walking route with the length about a half km, open all year round, except for the May period of activity of ticks. In April and May, phenological excursions are arranged by the ecotrail: you can look at the primroses and migratory birds. Three more routes are developed for hiking with a visit to dendrological park, climbing to the hills and rest on the bank of the river Bastak. Routes are available for the groups with a guide and Reserve Inspector.


On ecotrail it is prohibited: to deviate from the route, to come for a full house with the inscription "Reserve - entry is prohibited"; to break the trees and shrubs, to tear any terrestrial and aquatic plants, to collect mushrooms, berries, any inhabitants of the forest and water, to paint the rocks, stones and trees;
