Since late 20-ies, substantially increased the attention to environmental protection. Now, not only environmentalists, but also ordinary people think in order to make a contribution to the preservation of the ecological system of the Earth.
Simultaneously with the development of tourism there was such a thing as ecotourism. It’s not just trips or tours to national parks and reserves. Ecotourism cultivates the correct attitude to nature, eco educates and promotes the preservation of pristine nature.
Frustrating is the fact that ecotourism is a little-known pastime for citizens of the former USSR and in the West it is widespread. The main purpose of this type of tourism is not to harm the nature. During such trips tourists use only environmentally friendly transport, they make camp only in permitted places and collect the gifts of nature only in special areas.
Objects of ecotourism natural and cultural attractions, natural and man-made and natural landscapes. Thus travelers do not climb into the jungle, and visit any object of historical or cultural value to humanity.
Ecotourism is very attractive for travelers who prefer active leisure. Continue reading

We have already talked about the unusual lakes in the Andes earlier. It was a well-known lake Titicaca. In Bolivia on the high plateau there is still salt and fresh lakes. One of them has the name Colorado Lagoon (Laguna Colorado) or red lake.
It is surrounded by misty cliffs and boiling geysers. The second nearby Laguna Verde (Laguna Verde) has the green color of the water. Next to these lakes, stretches of sea salt. This solar de Juni, a huge salt flat. Once in its place was the waters of the ancient lake. Now only a swift breeze rolls salt dunes on the dune. The thickness of the minerals can reach six meters. Walk on it quite a dangerous occupation, because the salt marsh is possible to fail. As we walking on the frozen lake in winter.
Red lake of the Cordillera
A wonderful place where the land is perceived as a Mirage. The lake shining in the sun sometimes it is just an ice desert. Night stars exactly light up the purple sky and surrounding mountain scenery. Not every fiction writer, describing the planet, Mars has a paint that is of a local nature.
Near Laguna Colorado begins a local landmark national Park Eduardo (Eduardo Avaroa). The lake water is red brick and very salty. The water acquires a red color because of plankton and trace 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.
