The Teletskoye lake is situated between 51° 2′ 46″ and 51° 48′ 36″ North latitude and between 87° 14′ 40″ and 87° 50′ 54″ East longitude (from Greenwich), in the North-Eastern part of the Gorno-Altai Autonomous region (Altai Krai of the RSFSR).
Among the lakes of the USSR Teletskoye occupies a special position and is of great interest primarily for its geological (origins), morphology (the structure of the lake baths), morphometric (digital characteristics size and shape of lake basins), hydrological (physical and chemical properties of water) and biological characteristics.
Teletskoye lake is located at an elevation of 436 meters above sea level. In this respect, among the large lakes of our country it is inferior to Sevan (the height of 1914 meters), Issyk-Kul (1609 m) and lake Baikal (elevation 456 meters), but is higher than the other lakes. The amplitude of the height of the lakes fluctuates within about 5 kilometers. So, one of the highest located lakes of Hora in Tibet lies at an altitude of 4400 metres above sea level and the Dead sea in Palestine — at 392 meters Continue reading

She was found almost immediately, 450 p we were offered a tour of the lake Ritsa.

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.
