The Stanovoi Range (Russian: Станово́й хребе́т), also spelled as Stanovoy Range, is a mountain range located in southeastern parts of the Russian Far East. About 725 km long, it runs generally east-west from the Olekma River to the Mayar River , close to the Sea of Okhotsk, and delimits the watersheds of the Lena and Amur Rivers. Its highest point is Mount Skalisty at 2,482 m (8,143 ft).
The Yablonoi Mountains may be considered a southwestern extension of the Stavonoi.
