From this they'll probably become even more alluring and beautiful. Today we would like to tell you only about five ...
Artists Lake. Krasnoyarsk
In the Krasnoyarsk region in an amazing corner of the nature park Ergaki there are many wonderful and beautiful places, a lot of lakes, but there is one, perhaps the most alluring. It is not the first century touches the souls of artists, photographers and connoisseurs of works of nature - Lake of Artists.
The name of this lake was thanks to a group of Krasnoyarsk artists who find it even in the middle of the last century. And still it is one of the most desirable places that artists want to capture in their sketches, despite the fact that the road to it is long and complicated.
Artists of the lake is famous for its stunning scenery, unspoilt nature, delicious water, and the lake is still visible underwater ice in June, which in July is not already be over. This is just a miracle! Blue expanse of water, rocky mountains and spruce-pine forest - all this can be seen passing is not an easy journey on foot, capable of such, only a person with good preparation, no transport, no horse can not get there. But around the lake there are great places for parking.
The Valley of Geysers. Kamchatka
The Valley of Geysers - is a magical place, it can be understood even looking at the photo, but apart from that it is also unique! This valley is one of the largest in the world, and it is generally only in Eurasia.
You can get here only by helicopter, and even helicopter excursions there is a strict system of rules and created in order to preserve the balance of the ecosystem. Not only where you can see many miracles in a small area on either side of the river Geyser, located more than 40 active geysers, there is a volcano and waterfall, floating wells, lakes hot, boiling springs and numerous thermal springs, not tourists rarely meet brown bears. All this creates a lot of emotions and unforgettable impressions. In 2008, the Valley of Geysers entered the seven wonders of Russia.
Anyone who has ever been here already never will forget the Valley of Geysers, because it has a special magnetism, because in this place can be seen as "the land breathes", this is where you can feel all my pristine planet Earth.
Volcano Krenitsyn. Sakhalin region, the island Onekotan
Volcano Krenitsina on the one hand the typical "volcano volcano", but its dimensions are unique. This is the biggest "volcano volcano" in the world and it is no longer equal - 1325 meters high! On all sides it is washed by the waters of Lake cone-ring, which in turn is the deepest freshwater reservoirs in the Sakhalin region. According to scientists, over time, its depth will only increase.
The lake is very unpredictable, for a quiet and calm surface of the water hiding rebellious character. In windy weather, waves on the lake-ring can reach 3 meters, occasionally bouncing off the internal walls they form a caldera even circular movement. The volcano erupted only 1 time in 1952.
In addition to the unique dimensions, the volcano Krenitsyn still famous for its extraordinary beauty. Caldera from the inside is covered with alder and flowers, and frequent fogs give a mysterious, sometimes even a fabulous view. On the island grow blueberries, crowberry and cloudberry. Getting to the island is not easy, as all the incredible places of our planet it is difficult to reach. We have to fly in a helicopter or sail a boat.
At the moment the island Onekotan no one lives, in 2005 left the skeleton of border guards and he is no longer habitable, from what I think is even more attractive. Summer is cool, often fog and windy, and vice versa warm winter average temperature +4.
Orda Cave. Perm
Orda Cave is the longest gypsum cave in the world's longest underwater cave in Russia and the second longest in Eurasia. Not all of this fabulous cave is under water, "dry" part of the cave that does not occur very often. The length of the dry portion - 300 meters underwater - 4600 meters and it is only the length.
The name of the cave was named after the village Orda Perm region, on the edge of which she is. Orda cave actively began to explore in the early 1990s and so far it has not been studied thoroughly. How nice to know that not all places in the world are open and there is still room discoverers and incredible discoveries. new moves, which attract researchers from around the world very often appear in these caves.
Despite the fact that the water in the cave is crystal clear, which is rare for such a plan caves, cave can be quite insidious and easy swing of fins is able to completely deprive visibility. In general, the passage to the cave is only open to certified cave divers. But thanks to the work of the photographer Victor Lyagushkin we can at least partially immersed underwater kingdom Orda cave, which affects its mystery, crystal water and rest.
Putorana Plateau. Krasnoyarsk Territory
In Russia, in the center of a distant Siberia, above the Arctic Circle has an incredible and lost world or anything like that no more on planet Earth. The endless expanse of wilderness where animals are not afraid to approach people, and so much that is difficult to count in the rivers of another usual huge trout, where waterfalls and in the winter they freeze and turn into a fabulous ice falls.
