Klondike

About

The Klondike is a region of the Yukon Territory in northwest Canada, east of the Alaska border. It lies around the Klondike River, a small river that enters the Yukon River from the east at Dawson.

The Klondike is famed because of the Klondike Gold Rush, which started in 1897 and ended the following year.
