The Khabarovsk Territory has a well-developed hydrographic network. More than 120 thousand large and small rivers flow through the territory of the region, the main of which is the Amur. Its most significant tributaries are: Amgun, Anyui, Tunguska, Bureya, Ussuri. The largest rivers are: Maya, Uchur, Kopi, Tumnin, Tugur, Uda, Ulya, Urak.
The Amur is one of the largest rivers in Russia, ranking third in length and fourth in size of the water basin. River cruises on comfortable motor ships are very popular among tourists. Mountain rivers of the Khabarovsk Territory attract fans of fishing and extreme tourism. The most famous among them are rafting on the Akishma and Niman rivers, which have V and IV categories of difficulty. Many rifts and rapids with high standing waves make rafting on these rivers especially difficult and dangerous. A special uniqueness of the alloys is given by the stone outliers and waterfalls found along the banks, falling off the coastal cliffs and rocks.
Also interesting are rafting on the Tyrma and Tuyun rivers (III category of difficulty), which are located in the lower reaches of the Bureya river. These rivers are easily accessible by rail, the banks of the rivers are extremely picturesque, and grayling, lenok and taimen are excellently caught in their waters. The special attractiveness of the Tyrma rafting is given by the presence of a hydrogen sulphide source below the Burlo threshold.
Less accessible in terms of transport, but no less interesting are the northern rivers of the region (Yudoma, Ulbeya, Okhota, Kukhtui), flowing from the spurs of the Yudomsky ridge and the Suntar-Khayata ridge. In the upper and middle course, the waters of these rivers rush down rapidly, sandwiched by narrow stone valleys and canyons. The Delkyu-Okhotskaya river, which has long (up to 100 m) rapids with a high standing wave, is especially revered by extremals. Other rivers of the Khabarovsk Territory also have a huge potential for water tourism: Maya, Uchur, Uda, Ulya, Urak, which originate from low uplands and ridges. These rivers are interesting not only for rafting and excellent fishing - it was along them that the path of the pioneers to the Sea of Okhotsk lay.
The mountain-taiga rivers of Sikhote-Alin: Chuken, Pitskha, Anyui, Khor, Koppi, Tumnin and others are very convenient for water travel, available for road transport and located not far from Khabarovsk. walking routes along their banks, you can fully enjoy the beauty of the Far Eastern taiga and visit numerous natural monuments of the Khabarovsk Territory. Of the Sikhote-Alin rivers, the Pitskha River, or Tigrovaya, which was noted by V. rseniev.
The rivers of the Bureya and Badzhal ranges also have great tourist potential: Kur, Gorin, Urmi, Amgun, etc. These rivers are especially beautiful in the upper reaches, where glacial lakes, bizarre rocks with snow-capped peaks, valleys and terraces overgrown with dwarf cedar, rhododendron and edelweiss. In the middle course, the channels of these rivers break into numerous branches, which are especially dangerous for rafting with their giant creases.
The Matai River is a river in the south of the Khabarovsk Territory, a large tributary of the Khor River. It originates on the northern spurs of Mount Madagou. The length of the river is 142 km, the basin area is 2830 km. The main tributaries are: Balaza, Khima second and third, Dolmi, Kamen, Khasami.
Almost 200 people took part in the discussions - operators of well-known travel agencies in the region, specialists in the field of tourism from Blagoveshchensk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Vladivostok and the Jewish Autonomous Region. The forum became interesting for Yakuts, Sakhalin residents and Kamchadals, as well as for the leadership of the Federal Agency for Tourism and the Russian Union of Tourism Industry. We discussed the development of inbound, domestic, children's, cruise, event and gastronomic tourism in our region.
The forum announced that they want to organize a tourist and recreational zone on the island of Bolshoy Ussuriysky. Moreover, the island literally borders on a foreign neighbor. And now there is an active struggle for the Chinese tourist all over the world. About 1 million people from China come to Russia a year, but more is needed. But what exactly will be on the Bolshoi Ussuriysk, no one said.
Our river, according to experts, is also in demand among the Chinese. To attract them, you can use cruise trips on Chinese ships.
“Three years ago, we agreed with the Chinese side on a joint project for the development of cruise tourism on the Amur River,” said Nikolai Korolev, Deputy Head of the Federal Agency for Tourism. - The Russian and Chinese sides have developed their own concepts. It is necessary to connect them according to the laws of both sides. Heilongjiang Province is the main partner in the implementation of this project.
You need to lure tourists with modern infrastructure. According to Nikolai Korolev, in 2016 in Khabarovsk near the stadium. Lenin, construction of a large complex with hotels and restaurants will begin. About 177 million rubles will be allocated for this from the federal budget. Another 600 million will be required from extrabudgetary sources. The project also has a water park. It will be built by a private investor who has already been found.
“Now many are ready to travel around the Khabarovsk Territory,” says Lyudmila Bliznyukova, consultant of the tourism department of the Ministry of Culture of the Khabarovsk Territory. - In the Khabarovsk, Nanaisky, Nikolaevsky districts, there are already interesting products in terms of content and are quite affordable. But it is not enough to launch a motor ship along the Amur, you need to equip the marinas and everything else. We are working on this now. "
A separate topic of the forum is the travel of children across the Khabarovsk Territory. In this direction, safety is very important: you need to convince parents that nothing will happen to their child.
“It is very important that children go not only in their own country, but also in their own land,” says Olga Sanaeva, member of the Coordination Council for the Development of Children's Tourism in the Russian Federation under the Government of the Russian Federation. - It is impossible to love your homeland if you do not know it. And at the head of the problem is the high cost of transportation to the Far East from the center of the country and back. "
Tourism in the Khabarovsk Territory is distinguished by the prevalence of outbound over inbound tourism. Domestic tourist resources in the region are mainly natural. Sports tourism is developed in green areas around cities such as Khabarovsk, Komsomolsk-on-Amur, Amursk. The Amur River flows through the territory of the region, which in the species diversity of fish in the Northern Hemisphere ranks second after the Mississippi.
In the all-Russian rating of tourist attractiveness, the Khabarovsk Territory took ninth place out of 40 regions.
Located on the border of Yakutia and the Khabarovsk Territory. This is a land of extraordinary beauty, one of the most inaccessible and hardly visited regions of Russia.
The main ski resorts of the region are the bases "Spartak", "Dersu" near Khabarovsk, "Kholdomi" and "Amut Snowleik" near Komsomolsk-on-Amur.
In the region it is carried out both in the form of extreme sports rafting, and in the form of hunting, fishing and ecological tourism; most often they are combined. The most popular rafting on mountain rivers. For sports rafting, the rivers of the Bureya basin are used: Yaurin, Niman, Akishma and Tuyun, where there are many rapids, shivers, rocky clamps, corridors.
Rafting on the rivers of the Badzhal ridge during floods is possible.
One of the most beautiful and unique corners of untouched nature - the Shantar archipelago. The inaccessibility of the islands made it possible to preserve nature in all its primordiality. The Shantar Islands are a habitat and breeding ground for whales, seals and killer whales. The landscapes of the islands are striking in their beauty, these are sheer jasper cliffs, waterfalls up to 100 meters and wildflowers in the ice.
The public of the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur, tourist and sports communities of the Khabarovsk Territory at the beginning of 2020 turned to the Governor of the region with a request to organize a natural park in the central part of the Miao-Chan ridge for the development of tourism and nature protection. The decision on the need to create such a territory was also made by the Interdepartmental Commission of the Government of the Khabarovsk Territory for monitoring the use of forests in the Miao-Chan mountain range. The Khabarovsk regional branch of the Russian Geographical Society supported the initiative of local residents, scientists and specialists who advocate the need for the early preservation of these places.
The idea of organizing a protected natural area on the Miao-Chang ridge has repeatedly appeared among the scientific community. For the first time, the idea of the importance of creating a reserve here was expressed by A. Kurentsov back in 1959. Since 1997, Lake Amut, located in the central part of the ridge, has been a natural monument of regional importance. Unfortunately, this did not stop the negative impact on ecosystems in its vicinity. Therefore, the relevance in preserving the natural environment of this unique territory has not only not diminished, but, on the contrary, has become increasingly important.
The Miao-Chan mountain range is located in the central part of the Khabarovsk Territory. Translated from the Manchu language, Miao-Chan means "small (low) mountains." The ridge stretches from southwest to northeast for about 100 km. Most of its territory is located within the boundaries of the Solnechny municipal district.
The central part of the Miao-Chan ridge is a tourist Mecca for residents of the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur and its environs. The journey from the city by car takes only about an hour. The center of attraction of this territory is the famous throughout Russia mountain lake Amut, which is a natural pearl. Thousands of people come to see one of the seven wonders of the Khabarovsk Territory every year.
The great value of this natural area is its all-season availability. But not only the lake attracts tourists and travelers here. The uniqueness of this place also lies in its significant natural and recreational potential and scientific value.
Despite more than half a century of active development of these places, the high-mountainous part of the ridge has retained its original appearance, having survived from felling and fires. The main appearance of Miao-Chan is formed by fir-spruce forests with "beards" of lichens. There are no such unique natural places within walking distance anywhere else in the region. Primordial forests play an important environmental protection role: the sources of the rivers Silinka, Khurba, Khurmuli, Tsirkul, Chalba and others take place here. They are also the guardians of species of flora and fauna of the Red Data Books of the Khabarovsk Territory and Russia, the international CITES Convention. Among them are Siberian Grouse, Kutora, Goshawk and about a dozen boreal orchids. It should be noted that dozens of foreign tourists - birdwatchers come here every year just in search of grouse ("stone hazel grouse") - a rare bird that is not afraid of humans. Fir-spruce forests of the central part of the Far East are the only habitat of Siberian grouse in the whole world. And the Miao-Chang ridge is the most accessible for her observation.
Every year Miao-Chan becomes more and more popular and important for the development of tourism here. It is important to note that this natural area is in demand for recreation and as a training ground mainly by local residents who come to these places on weekends. During the winter tourist season (January - April) guests from other cities and regions of the Far East come here.
The abundance of snow from October to May (up to 2-3 m) creates ideal conditions for winter sports enthusiasts. For more than sixty years, Miao Chang has been a center of attraction for athletes, organized and amateur tourists. Several forest huts have been preserved in the taiga since the time of geological surveys. Amateur and organized travelers make multi-day routes to Mount Chalba (1556), Miao-Chan peak (1469), Lukovitsa (1218), etc. Wonderful views of the mountains, the Amur valley, Lake Evoron and the city of Komsomolsk-on-Amur open from the top of the ridge. ... In recent years, the Miao Chang Ridge has become a center for the development of mountain snowmobiling, snowboarding and off-piste skiing. Amateurs from all over the region come here especially for the sake of freeriding.
