• Geyser (blue) lake. Altai
Altai fine. It seems to have seen a lot of things, but he still has something to surprise. And it will surprise a very long time.
In May the road discovered totally cosmic space - geyser or Blue Lake. Few are aware of it, pointers / entrances are not, so it is necessary to know the place) Lake unusual form - it is a small pond in the center of which are thermal springs and take out the blue sludge. It looks like this cosmically - as if in the middle of the lake's heart beats ...
Just tell me who you remind silt in the lake? Personally, I - the skull, although half of our group was screaming monkey ... Oh my skull, seen such a deformation of the imagination)
The water in the lake does not freeze all year round. Can I go swimming? FIG knows) All around swamped normal slopes in no particular ode, and swim where? Lake depth - 2 m, width - about 30. As a small swimming pool. But in the network, I have not found evidence of bathers)
To get to the geyser lake in Altai, once you arrive to the village Aktas, you need to move from the base of "Mena" to the right side, about 500 - 600 m along the trail in an open area where you will see the marsh, through which can cross to the other side of the logs that are laid out randomly on a bog for easy crossing. During the passage to the lake Local "Ranger" with base sderet with you for 20 rubles. Obviously, because the path to the lake is more or less ennobled. But damn - no pointers! Neither the road nor the beginning of the trail. It is impossible so ...)
Geyser lake in Altai snimabelnoe from almost all sides except the one where the views of the transmission line. So a fantastic place and the wires cut local landscape ...
Local authorities need to learn from the experience of Iceland, which put the support in the form of huge giants. So perfectly to fit into the landscape. But nobody thinks about the beauty ...
Meanwhile, muzzle-skull on the bottom of the move, was transformed, due to the constant pulsing blue sludge. I repeat - it is a real space-fascinating spectacle!
