Blue Lakes Tour

Period of the event: june - september
Duration: 1 day

Blue Lakes have the status of a landscape park of regional significance.

Blue is a system of lakes located at an altitude of 600 meters above sea level, 16 km from the city of Yelizovo. The lakes got their name because of an interesting natural phenomenon: transparent water and ice on the bottom reflect sunlight so that the color of the lakes seems surprisingly turquoise or purple, depending on the season and the amount of ice on the bottom.

The walking route runs through the most picturesque places. The length of the route is about 15 km. The lakes located at different heights are connected by a streamlet, which, flowing from the last stream, gives rise to the Polovinka River. Having climbed the ridge – the last height before the final destination – tourists can admire the panorama of ice circuses and rocky peaks of the Vachkazets mountain range, picturesque lakes in the valleys of the Left Bystrica and Havanka rivers.

The slopes of the basin are covered with berry bushes. In the vicinity of the lakes you can see a lot of flowers, from mid–August you can try Kamchatka wild plants - cranberries, shiksha, get acquainted with the local inhabitants – ground squirrels.
