Drowned in Lake Kaindy forest
• Drowned in Lake Kaindy forest
Mountain Lake at an altitude of 2000 meters, the purest water unreal turquoise color and dead wood, standing among her - once there were trees. In the distance, floating duck and screaming the whole neighborhood, and the echo of its quacking spreads in the mountains ... This morning just blew my mind.
Once upon a time, in 1910, due to an earthquake landslides blocked the gorge.
Shortly mountain river filled with water, which was also under the pine forest, before growing here.
Since this place is called "drowned forest."
The same lonely duck floating in the distance:
Because of the very cold water in the lake tree trunks, fallen into the trap of over a hundred years ago, perfectly preserved.
One of the trunks somehow appeared on the shore:
The depth of the lake in some places is about thirty meters, and length - about four meters.
duck chose to sail away Seeing me:
The water color turquoise, very rich and changing weather.
Let's look at it closer.
In addition to the river into the lake two small creek, which form miniature waterfalls near the shore. The name "Kaindy" translated from Kazakh as "birch".
The explanation is simple - two kilometers away is the birch grove, is not clear as appeared among the Tien Shan forests.
In the 1980s, as a result of the passage of debris flood area of the lake has decreased.
On the same level of water in it can be judged by the color of the white trunks.
Returning to a parking lot, I thought it was a second chance in life and can not be presented. He took off his shoes, undressed and went into the icy water. Moving away ten meters, he breathed deeply and plunged his head ...
At the time of the surface of the water echoed the cry with which the weft already could not compete. Frightened, she decided it was off ... But, making a circle over the lake, soon came back.
Meanwhile, the weather began to deteriorate. The tops of the nearby mountains have disappeared in the clouds:
Note How to change the color of the lake, along with the weather:
The locals call the surviving trunks of trees, "Guardians."
Some of them are right and others are already out of alignment with age:
They stand in front of the canyon itself, as if peering, if anyone is going to go through it. I wonder who and by whom they are guarding?
After collecting camp decide to go upstairs to enjoy the view from the bird's flight.
Because of the very cold and clean water conifer trees are well preserved and can be seen at a depth of.
This place is also very popular among divers. I would and he did not give "walk" through the underwater forest of drowned more than a hundred years ago.
Meanwhile, the weather has finally deteriorated.
The color of water changed once again, becoming much darker:
The tops, which we looked at just a few minutes ago, have disappeared behind a dense veil. Perhaps it was the most amazing place for our whole trip to Kazakhstan.
