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.
