Deltah Junction is a city located in Alaska, about 160 kilometers from Fairbanks, Alaska. Approximately the number of residents is not more than nine thousand people, and it should be noted that this figure is quite impressive for a city in the state of Alaska, since most of the cities are small, and only the state capital and its surrounding areas can boast a population of more than ten thousand people.

The main feature of the city of Dalta Junction is that it is located in the Tanana River Valley, which is very fertile. From here, Della Junction offers an amazing and scenic view, which attracts thousands of tourists every year. Surrounded by three mountain ranges, the town looks like a fortress, protected from outside influences, both natural and human.

The mountain ranges include the Alaska Range in the southwest, the White Mountains in the north, and the Granite Mountains in the southeast. Only on the west side is the city open to the public. On the west side flows the Delta River, which is also a spectacular sight.
