What to see in Buryatia: TOP-10 amazing sights

If you are a lover of a relaxing holiday with the sun and fishing, this lake is for you. Lake Volozevo in the village of Budy. Nearby is the Moch bog and the Yelnya bog.

Lake Volozevo is one of the most beautiful in our area of ​​the Vitebsk region. It is located in the Yelnya, Mokh swamp. The best tourist destination in Belarus, in my opinion. Impressed.

Lake Volozevo in the swamp

Two swamps: Moss and Yelnya are adjacent, swampy raised bogs, where sphagnum moss grows, often used for log logs to close all cracks between logs (construction).

I have experienced all the delights of this lake. I saw extraordinary dark water, surprisingly sandy bottom for a swamp lake. Gradual descent.

One small minus is cool water. And the fish was not caught, although it is there and it is written that they are being caught.

It's transparent on the lake, I watched the fauna of the reservoir: how shitiki (caddis flies) crawled, how piavki sat on a shell, crawling ants, mating swimmers. A beautiful distance, a forest behind, a wonderful sunset. Delightful landscapes.

Lucky with a warm sunny day. We drove for a long time, but the road was normal. I strongly recommend it to all tourists.

Tourist Information

It is great that there are places for recreation in the village of Buda. There are gazebos, long masonry. Fishing is allowed there, however, you need to know how and when to fish. We didn't get it. We sat at a picnic, wandered, bathed. The photos came out great.

There is also masonry on the second side of the lake, but not all of the boards are there and no one is doing it. Maybe it was ripped off by high water. Some people build summer cottages near the lake.

It is convenient to make a fire near the gazebo. Nearby grass and trees, including apple trees. The beach is grass, the bottom is sand. The entrance to the water is safe, smooth, shallow.

We rest in Bashkiria

Russia is an incredible country that delights tourists with its picturesque edges. You can find attractions for absolutely every taste. By the number of lakes on the territory of the country, Russia also occupies a leading place. That is why such a phenomenon can be considered a national wealth. If we consider each lake separately, but they have some of their own characteristics and uniqueness.

If a person has a desire to admire the natural beauty, then it is necessary to go to the lake, this article will present 5 of the most unique points on the territory of Russia.

Raspberry Lake, Altai

One of the most beautiful lakes in the whole of Siberia. An incredibly beautiful lake, a lot of tourists come here every year. Raspberry Lake is distinguished by its color of water, which can already be understood from the name.

The fact is that this lake is inhabited by a gill-legged crayfish, which throws a pink pigment into the water. Throughout the year, the shades change, for example, in the spring, the color of the water is the most saturated - brown.

This lake can be compared to the sea in terms of salt concentration. You can safely swim in it, as the body is supported on the surface. At the bottom of the reservoir there is a salt crust, which can be injured, so you should not dive and you need to be careful.

Lake Jack London, Magadan

One of the most beautiful lakes in the entire country. This is the place that newlyweds are advised to choose for their first romantic trip. The lake lies in one of the most beautiful places, the lake is surrounded by mountains and greenery.

There is an opinion that this lake got its name due to an unusual find. Jack London's book was found on the shore. Not far from the lake itself there are many more lakes, but smaller in size.

Lotus Lake, Volgograd

One of the most beautiful and in the literal sense of the word bright lakes in the whole country. Usually tourists come here during the lotus blooming period. With the onset of the warm season, the lake is covered with thousands of flowers.

If the weather is sunny outside, then each flower has a pearlescent color. Naturally, you cannot pick a flower for yourself, since it is listed in the Red Book. If you managed to see this lake once, then this spectacle will definitely not be forgotten. Everything looks incredibly romantic and beautiful. This flower is considered a symbol of a happy couple.

Ivolginsky Datsan

This is a monastic complex of eight buildings, including temples, a library and the only Buddhist university in Russia, where philosophy and traditional Tibetan medicine are studied. His fame is spread far beyond the borders of Russia.

The glory of the datsan is associated not only with the excellent spiritual education that they receive here, but also with the name of Dashi-Dorzho-Itigelov, the leader of Buddhists of the early 20th century. In 1927, Itigelov left for a better world, reading a prayer in the lotus position. So he was buried without changing his position in the cedar sarcophagus in Khuhe-Zurkhen. In 1957, the body was examined and no signs of decay were found. After the ceremony and the change of clothing, the body was again buried. In 1973, the incorruptible body was raised again and buried again.

In September 2002, the sarcophagus was dug up and the body was examined. She showed that Itigelov's joints remained mobile and the skin was soft. The phenomenon could not be explained. Today pilgrims from all over the world come to see the imperishable body of the twelfth Pandito Hambo Lama. It is believed that Itigelov helps everyone who asks for him.
