Hi all! I want to tell you how we went to the lake Shap in our the Mari Republic!
Shap is a lake, go 21 km on the highway and another 2 KM on the lake here on this asphalt path. Surprised that these 2 KM not in the city passed unnoticed, and it seemed that we all go 5-7 KM. On the way, nothing interesting! =(
The lake is divided into 4 parts four bases. 3 of them are children’s sanatoriums and camps, and 1 is a sanatorium for adults, where we rested. Happy children, on their side all the time was the music they played and had fun. and only went on our grumpy aunt, and something was muttering under his breath! +))
We sat on the beach and went swimming! Very happy with the presence of plantana, with which it was possible to make a great jumping!
Actually swimming was great! Even despite the fact that we in the Republic were “cold” ash to +10 degrees. The water really was chilly, but we couldn’t stop! =) Even my girlfriend doesn’t know how to swim, so we had to take pains. tried to teach her, but it just never happened, so I decided to just walk around.
On the way met a lot of interesting things. Themselves were pleasantly surprised:
Track health is the first thing that we met. It seems just a track with stones? nothing of the sort! The tin begins Continue reading
Notes traveler and not only))
Yesterday, together with the user Badwolf, I decided to go to the lake Ritsa. Initially, the trip was planned from Sochi with a guided tour, but on Sunday visits, there was not, so we went to Gagra and decided to look for tour from there.
She was found almost immediately, 450 p we were offered a tour of the lake Ritsa. Note that from Sochi tour is worth 1200r. and it is less interesting, as the only stop in 3 places, tour of Gagra meant a stop at the waterfalls of Male and Female tears, OSPARCOM the canyon, the Blue lake, the observation deck “farewell homeland”, and directly on the lake. Also, for an additional cost of 200p. we were offered to go for another waterfalls Bird’s beak and Dairy, as well as view of the lake from the height of bird flight. It I all to what the tour from Abkhazia not only more profitable, but also more interesting. The place is very beautiful in the way quite a lot, so I decided to break my story into several parts to show more.
The first attraction on the way to Ritsa lake is a waterfall Women’s tears.
