Batagay - a small village in the Verkhoyansk Ulus, 90km from the town of Verkhoyansk. It is noteworthy that Verhojansk with 1,200 inhabitants is considered a city, and Batagay a population of 4,000 people is considered to be the village, the capital of the Verkhoyansk district.
Settlement purely industrial, at least in the past. Now, I only saw the abandoned mines, which previously mined tin.
It is situated in the spurs of the Polar Urals. The name translates as "Northern Lights". Sometimes these names combine together and say - Harp ( Northern Lights ) .
To some extent, Harp can call the prison village. There are two maximum security prisons. One of them called "Snowy owl".
