Welcome to Eastern Bam

The highlights of the eastern BAM are the BAM Museum in the unofficial BAM capital, Tynda, and the pastel-coloured pseudotsarist architecture of Komsomolsk-na-Amure, where you can also ski, visit Nanai villages or take a Gulag tour. There’s not much between Tynda and Komsomolsk besides often lifeless trees, their roots severed by cruel permafrost below, and a slew of rather uninspired Soviet towns created to finish the railroad. Disembark only if you’re searching for ghost towns or gold (prospecting is rife in this region). However, if you do get off, prepare to wait for up to a day for the next train.
