  • Beautiful lake no words. But not ennobled. It is difficult to drive by transport, it is better not to drive in bad weather. There is rubbish everywhere, of course it is from people. Going down to the lake is problematic, the stairs are short, apparently the water is gone. There is also nowhere to sit. Take with you
  • Beautiful place. Were for the first time. You can approach the lake, yes, you will have to go to the lake, but not much, 500 meters, from two sides. From the side of the Shariboksad village, you go from top to bottom, to the lake, where the view that is in the photo opens. You can approach on the left, where the views, and on the right, where the forest and just below the shore. And also from the village of Podgornye Shari, this is a detour, where the circle is 3-5 km along the shebenka and the primer (it will be difficult in the rain), the road is ugly. Here you go up and down. Here, the plus is that you can sit at a barbecue, there are clearings, places, and the place is safer, especially with children. Lake with clean water without smell. There is a bungee on the lake. Not a safe occupation, but the local boys are real pros in this business, that they just don’t get up (of course!) They trained all summer. But they do tricks like aerialists in a circus!) I also tried - my heart was beating wildly, then calmed down. I rode a couple more times, and then I decided to swim and bungee jumped a couple of times! The place is good! Recommend! I only ask you People, take your trash with you, clean up after yourself, don't litter there! Don't be pigs! Be human please!
  • Beautiful karst lake. Worth a visit. Steep descent to the lake. You can get there by car by parking in the village. You can visit all year round. In spring, the lake is at its most full-flowing.
  • A very beautiful place, a sea-colored lake, a beautiful view from above, clean air, the smell of forest and water! Only once again it strikes the attitude of man to nature, disgusting, redneck! Around heaps of traces of stay, fires, barbecues, bottles! Clean up after yourself, save nature!
  • A beautiful place, a kind of natural monument. Near the lake you can mentally sit and have a picnic. In hot weather, people swim in it, there are places for jumping from the slopes and bungee. Unfortunately, there is no normal road access to this famous place and you will have to drive about 15 km along broken roads and another 1 km on foot.
