In lieu of a Trip Report
Mama Falls High Point of the Range
Late February-March ski backpack in Upper Angara Range of Transbaikalian Siberia in 1986 sent 5 skiers on a 16-day tour of this seldom visited mountain country. We started heavy trailbreaking up Yakchiy Creek, crossing mountain passes over to Upper Angara River and then further North to Left Fork Mama; made two recon loops from the area of the famous Mama Falls, first across the Northern Ranges, then into the heart of the high-altitude country to the South, in headwaters of Ogdynda-Maskit; and finally ascended frozen cascades of Mama Falls. Our return route went up Asikta Valley, over a high pass to Anamakit Valley, and then down another canyon of frozen waterfalls to the Southern taiga plains.
