Golden Autumn at Chernobyl Exclusion Zone!

My Autumn trip with DJI Phantom 4 pro to Chernobyl Exclusion Zone - one of more dangerous place in planet.

Established by the Soviet Armed Forces soon after the 1986 disaster, it initially existed as an area of 30 km (19 mi) radius from the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant designated for evacuation and placed under military control. Its borders have since been altered to cover a larger area of Ukraine. The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone borders a separately administered area, the Polesie State Radioecological Reserve, to the north in Belarus. The Chernobyl Exclusion Zone is managed by an agency of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine, while the power plant and its sarcophagus (and replacement) are administered separately.

The Exclusion Zone covers an area of approximately 2,600 km2 (1,000 sq mi) in Ukraine immediately surrounding the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant where radioactive contamination from nuclear fallout is highest and public access and inhabitation are restricted. Other areas of compulsory resettlement and voluntary relocation not part of the restricted exclusion zone exist in the surrounding areas and throughout Ukraine.

The Exclusion Zone's purpose is to restrict access to hazardous areas, reduce the spread of radiological contamination, and conduct radiological and ecological monitoring activities. Today, the Exclusion Zone is one of the most radioactively contaminated areas in the world and draws significant scientific interest for the high levels of radiation exposure in the environment, as well as increasing interest from tourists.


Thank you for watching , and i waiting for your coments!

Amazing photos! What a terrible thing it was that happened there. Such a tragedy. I'm surprised you were allowed to photo this, but glad you have shared the pictures. It has been so long, but it shows just how damaging something like this can be and for such a long time. I doubt that area will ever be able to be lived in again. So sad.

it will be very interesting if Phantom would have to be landed for some reason and wouldn`t be able to lift off again!!!

but as I`ve heard, this area is safe for visitors/tourist  for a short period of time!!

Good footage from Chernobyl is always epic. I particularly like the way that nature has re-claimed the city. Would love to visit this place with my MA and freestyle quad. The risk would be worth the capture of awesome footage......A little far from the UK though and not exactly a top 5 long weekend destination. Cracking job Sir.
