Geography

Chokurdakh is located on the left bank of the Indigirka River, below its confluence with the Allaikha. The Yana-Indigirka Lowland lies to the west and northwest, and the Kondakov Plateau to the east, beyond the other bank of the Indigirka. [12]

History

It was founded in 1936 as the new administrative center of Allaikhovsky District, which was established in 1931.[ citation needed ] It served as a river port on the Indigirka, connecting to sea traffic using the Northern Sea Route. Urban-type settlement status was granted to it in 1981. [2]

Administrative and municipal status

Within the framework of administrative divisions, the urban-type settlement of Chokurdakh [1] serves as the administrative center of Allaikhovsky District. [2] As an administrative division, it is incorporated within Allaikhovsky District as the Settlement of Chokurdakh. [2] As a municipal division, the Settlement of Chokurdakh is incorporated within Allaikhovsky Municipal District as Chokurdakh Urban Settlement. [5]
