The Sikhote-Alin is a mountain range in Primorsky and Khabarovsk Krais, Russia, extending about 900 km to the northeast of the Russian Pacific seaport of Vladivostok.
The highest summits are Tordoki Yani (2,077 m) and Anik Mountain (1,933 m).
Sikhote-Alin comprises one of the most extraordinary temperate zones in the world. Species typical of northern taiga (such as reindeer and the brown bear) coexist with tropical species like the Siberian tiger and the Himalayan bear.
