Yablonovy Range

▪ mountains, Russia
Russian  Yablonovy Khrebet,  

      mountain range in the Transbaikalia region of Chita oblast (province) and Buryatiya, in far eastern Russia. The range is some 500 miles (800 km) long northeast–southwest and reaches a maximum height of 5,512 feet (1,680 m) in Mount Kusotuy. Formed principally of granites and gneisses, it has been uplifted and much-fractured. The highest peaks are bare, but most of the range is densely forested with larch, spruce, and pine. The Trans-Siberian Railroad crosses the range by a low pass at Yablonovaya.
