Beautiful lake in Mongolia
• Beautiful lake Mongolia
Lakes National Park, Altai Tavan Bogd National Park - a scattering of pearls among snowy mountains. Like jewels, transparent tears rimmed mountain ranges. Well, enough of romantic nonsense. But it's really a beautiful place, where in this wilderness, that not everyone dares to go there. Lake Mongolian Altai became the final point of our trip to Mongolia, after which we started the return trip. Two days surrounded by snow-capped peaks, clear water and Mongolian yurts. They were wonderful, quiet and calm.
go there for a long time. We must be prepared for the fact that in Mongolia distance - this is a very relative thing. Everything depends on the precipitation state of "road" car and driver skill. But it's worth it. Lake Houghton, where we left off - this is a very beautiful place. And me, as a man who has seen up to a fig of all, it is very difficult to surprise. But there is good. Rocky shore, covered with lonely larch.
Larch !!! Real, high, huge trees !!! After the desert and barren steppes of Mongolia, real trees made a splash! Many rushed to hug them. Well, not many, and only me. But it was nice)
In the quiet surface of the lake reflected the snow-white clouds. Water were seen following by playing the fish. If tourists get here, then they go for fishing. In general, the lion's share of tourists coming to Mongolia for her. There quite a wild grayling, which do not touch the local. Unless children occasionally rod-run.
Not had time to cool down the motor of the machine, as our driver dropped everything and ran to catch fish, simultaneously taking the lives of all of our fishermen. And really - pecked perfectly. Guys caught grayling small bucket, which was roasted and eaten in the evening. While cleaning the fish managed to tame all the local birds of prey - the bounty lined up eagles. You should have seen what shape the air they showed when caught fish heads!
I, too, joined the general madness, and caught a few fishes. This is my first catch of the many, many years. Fortunately I did not have a limit. Long forgotten sensation) Anticipating the question, I will say that caught on the "fly".
Of course, not forget about the scenery. And they were just great. Although cloudy presaged bad weather in the evening.
Not far from us was a small settlement of several yurts. On the first day we pay a visit delegation of local children, who sold some cheese and milk. And in the evening tightened adults who long for something to talk to our drivers. Probably looking for common relatives.
In all Mongolian yurt is fired and cook on dry dung, and here in the foothills of the local permit themselves the luxury of untold - firewood. Nothing unusual, just the camel loaded with firewood. Flipping on.
There was even a shop! His staged in one of the yurts. The range of frugal, but in the ordinary Mongolian store is not very. And so all the most necessary at hand.
On a visit to the Mongols, we were just in time - just in time for the evening milking. Amazed that were engaged in absolutely everything - from young and old. Kids and grandmother milked goats, hardly paying attention to us.
Even the smallest help! This is what Kinder three years no more, and he had a can full of milk runs. And our children so iPhones iPads ask ...
Weather meantime port. There was a nasty cold wind. On the horizon sparkled. I love this weather. More than sunsets and sunrises. However, there is the risk of getting wet, but this is justified by the risk.
The cloud almost covered our camp. She was ready to give birth dense flow is suddenly changed wind and cloud turned back. We lay down in the tent, a little nap - sunset clearly foreshadowed. But while the lay, the wind blew the clouds completely, and the sky flashed. Barely had time to jump out of his house and rush off to tame place.
The sky is on fire. Rarely, when all the fuses and the sky lights up with all the colors. And then luck. Stunning evening. Only have time to press the button.
On the shore were spectacular stumps. by shamelessly cut down the forest. Although the nature park, and cutting it is strictly prohibited. In Mongolia, the natural park - the concept is very relative ...
Even art objects were on the shore.
It was one of the longest sunsets over the full year. Blazed a long time. More than an hour a cloud of light over his head. And when the sky lit up the stars, they went on a little burn. Great evening as a gift, in the completion of the Mongolian expedition.
