a mountain range at the junction of the Transbaikalia and Amur mountain systems; western link of the Tukuringra-Dzhagdy mountain chain in Amur Oblast, RSFSR. The Chernyshev Range separates the valley of the Niukzha River of the Olekma basin from the valleys of the Ol’doi and Tynda rivers of the Amur basin. The range is 120 km long and reaches an elevation of 1,572 m at Mount Lukinda. It is composed of granites and schists and has flattened, swell-like crests. Mountain taiga predominates, and thickets of dwarf stone pine are found at higher elevations. The range was named in honor of F. N. Chernyshev.
