The Lyakhovsky Islands are the southernmost group of the New Siberian Islands, which are located along the Dimitri Laptev Strait that connects the Laptev Sea and the East Siberian Sea. The New Siberian Islands had already been seen and visited in the early 18th century by Russian explorers. On Lyakovsky’s southeastern side is a meteorological station, and was featured in two Jules Verne novels (referred to as the Liakhov Islands) in the late 19th century. The Lyakhovsky Islands are known by avid explorers for their cliffs, landscape and fossil finds. View more
