Nizhniy Baskunchak Favorites
Favorite thing: Baskunchak is a real salt lake, i.e. there were no any water there - only salt.
For last 125 years ths is the main Russian salt-fields. Salt is digged by miner leaving long and deep caves in the salt. Those caves filled with rain water making a nice place for extream swiming. Extream - because even small wind can move you like a baloon across the water.
Fondest memory: Fill yourself a baloon ar a wooden puppet.
Favorite thing: Visited many mud places in the world I've noticed that tourists consider all mud very curative. LOL! Baskunchak is not an exception!Related to:

Favorite thing: Bogdo is a stand-alone mountain in a steppe. Is is only 150 m high, but it is growing every year by 1 mm. Bogdo is very picturesque and colourful as its rocks are of the different minerals of different colours (from deep red to white and yellow).Related to:
