Река Кемпендяй

Kempendyay River flows in Suntarsky District of the Republic of Sakha (Yakutia). This river is known by the fact that its coast is full of salt sources, it was found several hundred years ago. After a while, salt processing plant was opened.

In winter, the salt from the water to freeze, and in the summer thanks to the warm rays of the sun the water evaporates and the salt content of the tank takes place.

If you look at the salt deposits in the heat of summer, it seems that the river is covered with a white snow blanket.

In modern times salt production decreased due to lack of demand for the product.

Besides salt, Kempendyay river is rich in fish, it is found amazing pike size.
