The salt concentration in the Gorky Lake is about 115 g/l, roughly the same as in Bolshoye Yarovoye. It is almost impossible to drown here: the water pushes upward.

Blue healing clay lies at the bottom of the lake and along the shores. Small red brine shrimp can be found in the water. When they die off together with brine (salt water) and silt, they form curative mud. This year, due to the cold spring, there are very few crustaceans.

However, the possibilities of Altai are much wider, it is able to provide not only a calm rest for the soul and body, but also a wide range of different options for those who like active rest. For example, trekking or river rafting, and other types of water tourism.

Description of the Peschanaya River (Altai Territory)

The Peschanaya River is one of such places, providing great opportunities for travelers. The source of the Peschanaya River in the Altai Territory on the map is located two dozen kilometers above the village of Besh-Ozek. This place can be found near the Seminsky Pass. The source of the river is located almost one and a half thousand meters above sea level. The sandy river cannot be called a calm river, it is in a hurry to go down, becoming part of the great Ob river. On its way, the stream of this river overcomes various rapids, divides and connects back. The confluence of the Ob and Peschanaya rivers is located very close to the inflow of the Biya and Katun, literally fifteen kilometers away.

The mouth of this river is considered very beautiful, therefore it was recognized as a natural monument. However, this status was assigned to this place not only for the beauty of the landscape, there are a lot of birds nesting on the banks of reservoirs located near the mouth.

You can get directly to the mouth of the river using only your own legs or the legs of a horse or the surface of the water. In other words, you cannot get to the mouth of the river by car.

The river bed is two hundred and eighty kilometers long. Thus, the river has the ability to touch many regions of the Altai Republic, at least five.

The place from which all the atmospheric precipitation that feeds the river flows down extends for five and a half thousand square kilometers. This river basin is limited by the Anuisky, Cherginsky, Saminsky and Terektinsky ranges.

If you divide the river according to how the current behaves, three sections can be distinguished: the first stretches from the source to the mouth of the Bolshaya Tikhaya, the second to the village of Krasny Gorodok, and the third ends directly with the Ob.

Fans of active recreation on the water divide rivers into different categories of difficulty. The Peschanaya River of the Altai Territory has an average level of difficulty, denoted by the number three. This means that the river has rapids with moderately difficult ramparts. Those who are rafting downstream are unlikely to be able to avoid all obstacles. Large shafts, funnels can meet. There is no mortal danger on this river, but you should be careful. There are six hazard levels in total, the easiest of them is at number one, the most difficult at number six. Thus, Sandy is in the middle.

For those who like to spend time fishing, this river is also of interest. You can go fishing on your own or take advantage of one of the many tours.
