Mogotoyevo – the largest salt lake in the north of the Yana-Indigirka lowland, Republic of Sakha (Yakutia), Russia. It freezes in the second half of September and thaws in June. There is an anabranch from the lake to the East Siberian Sea – the Melkaya River (Mogotoevskaya). The lake is linked via an anabranch with the salt lake of Bolshoye. The lake is mouthed by the river of Vorontsov, the creek of Yuzhnyi Mogotoevskiy, the river of Melkaya, and multiple creeks. The coast is low lying. There are few capes in the lake: Klyk, Klychok, Tupoy, and Ostryi. On the north shore, there are several hunting huts. The lake has fish like cisco, white salmon, and whitefish in large quantities.
