Stanovoi Range

The Stanovoi Range, sometimes spelled Stanovoy, is a 450-mile range that runs southeastward along southeastern Russia to the Sea of Okhotsk. The Stanovoi rises along the southern edge of the Aldan Plateau, marking the southern boundary of the Yakut Autonomous Republic. It is the continuation of the Yablonovyy Range, and the combined length of the two ranges is well over one thousand miles, and forms a major watershed between the Pacific and the Arctic Oceans. The Stanovoi is further continued by the Dzugdzhur Range, which runs along the eastern coast. The Stanovoi's highest peak is Gora Skalistyy Golets (Skalisty Mountain; 8143 ft./2482 m.), located near its eastern terminus.
