magnificent pine forest at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level and is famous for its origin. It was formed in
1911 due to the powerful earthquake that triggered the landslide blocked the valley by the natural dam, and the
water has flooded the valley. The water of the lake is very cold, that is why the needles of the flooded trees are
well preserved and clearly visible through the transparent surface of the water, and dry stems of fir trees overlook
the water surface, like the masts of the submarine squadron. It is impossible to describe in words all this mystical

highest lake is small. It is located on the border of fir-wood and the alpine meadows and amazes by its harsh
alpine beauty, as well as the rich flora and fauna. Vertical drop between the three lakes is about 700 meters. The
lowest lake can be reached by car. But you should walk few kilometers along mountain trails to see the second and
the third lake. Without doubts the tourists are expected to have a wonderful vacation in these places — berries,
mushrooms and fishing. The water in the lakes is cold and clean and is home for the rainbow trout — a fish that lives
