Then tourists with bags on foot to overcome the ill-fated 500 meters of neutral territory. And on the way back they are searched like criminals…
But it happens differently, a human being!
For several years now we go to Issyk-Kul, literally storming the border. And so accustomed to it, they think that the way it should be. Got used to the queues to the window, behind which sits Oh-Oh-Oh-Oh-very slow the guard. Resigned to the fact that tourists are kicked out of the bus, despite the fact that it’s night outside and many children. Sleepy babies cry, moms on edge, trying to calm them down, frantically looking for papers… And still have bags from the Luggage pick up – inspection, you know… the bus get the Luggage, and the poor guy rest, like beasts of burden, forced to go on the border.

Dangerous the lake is at the top of the volcano Small Semyachik. Namely, in the crater of the name of the Trinity. It attracts tourists with its amazing color — with height of bird’s flight in Sunny weather, overlooking the bright turquoise lake surrounded by black earth. This color give the lake the smallest particles of sulfur that are released into the water from the volcano. If you look at the lake from the surface of the earth, it is impossible to believe that it looks turquoise on top. From some angles the pond seems to be just muddy. The diameter of the lake is small — only 500-600 meters.
The Semyachik volcano is considered to be valid, some scientists believe that this lake was formed as a result of one of the eruptions. The water temperature here is around 30-40 degrees, but the lake gradually cools down. In some winters the surface is fully covered with ice and snow.
In the crater of the Trinity on the shore there is a small black beach, but swimming there is deadly: dissolved in water acid eat through even metal. Prolonged exposure near a lake without a mask can also harm the health. However, tourists are regularly organized not only helicopter tours over the volcano, but Hiking tours on the lake — and even with the descent into the crater to the shore.

Moreover, the purity and the content of dissolved salts, this water is approaching distilled. Visibility in the Baikal can reach depths of 40-45 meters – as in clear tropical seas. The area, however, the lake occupies only 6th place in the world, but it can be compared with the territory of Belgium or the Netherlands. And when you consider the unique flora and fauna, rich history and picturesque landscapes, it becomes clear that the area needs to attract tourists, including divers and fishermen.
It was developed in the fishing and shipbuilding, but in the 1990s, companies were closed. But for one and a half decades, tourism has undergone all the stages of development and reached the level of modern industry. On the way to the lake you can find many fishing shops – if you forgot to take the bait or fishing line fluorocarbon, without which there will be not enough. Here you can find and pick the perfect one for yourself.
