Vankarem Lowland – stretches on the northern coast of the Chukchi Sea from Cape Schmidt to Kolyuchinskaya Bay. The surface is marked by several buttes that are not very high (220–430 m). The lowland is cut by many rivers, including the Ektyvapat, Amguema, Ekugvaan, Vankarem, Velmai, and others. The coastal area proper is indented by many large lagoons – Tenkergynpilgyn, Ukougepilgyn, Nutauge, Vankarem, and Pyngopilgyn.
