Karabetova Sopka and Salt Lake - from riches in the mud

The last article about our visit to the Taman Peninsula, which left an indelible impression in the memory. I already laid out a post about Martian landscapessee why you understand :) Well, today a post about a volcano. Yes, yes, and this is also there.

The content of the article

Karabetova Sopka

It turns out we have in Central Russiaactive volcano, true mud. The road there was difficult and dangerous, we lost even one wheel, but it was worth it. At least for the sake of unusual landscapes resembling the moon, at least I imagine them so. Upstairs there was even a lake, but we did not dare to swim in it, as animals graze there.

The Karabetov volcano itself slept deeply during our arrival and resembled just a large pile of dried mud that turned into a gray-white cracked ground.

We already thought of leaving, but accidentally foundsalsa, mud springs. Actually, for the sake of which everyone comes here. Hills letting mud bubbles look quite impressive. It is no less interesting to observe how the mud flow meditatively slides down. At first it seems that he is not moving at all.

Some members of our crew could not resistin front of a freebie and took with them a whole five-liter of healing mixture, which we then successfully presented in Gelendzhik to lovers of masks and other mud procedures.

Lake Salt Taman

On this day, our dirty adventures are notended and immediately after the Karabetovaya hill we went to the Salty Lake, which is located near the village of Veselovka. Dirt there is different, but probably no less healing. She was so vigorous black in color that there was a feeling that I was walking on a can of shoe polish. Only on top of this shoe polish sprinkled salt with earth. By the way, there is really enough salt here, it lies in pieces, not like on Khan Lake.

Driving along the lake to the beach (along the edge is veryhard cover, although the race arrange), we were on the beach at the campsite. And here they appeared, 4 black glittering humanoids, well, as if they had arrived from another planet. Our fascinated eyes could only take a herd of Zaporozhets, rustling past. And where did they come from?

Getting there

It is best to get to Karabetovaya hilldirt road marked on the map in blue. This is the easiest way. For now they built a railway there, and on the other side (from the sea) it is already difficult to pass. We tried, but the move there was not yet fully prepared. In any case, the option on the card is no longer. How to find the right turn on this dirt road? It is located just before Taman itself, and before the turn, where there is a big inscription "Taman". At first we turned at the inscription, but now you can not drive there, there is some kind of a tower and it blocks the way.

It’s easy to get to Salt Lake. Just guided by the map. We drove along the road marked in blue. But you can drive up from the direction of Veselovka. You can also drive up first to the beach where the campsite is located, but there is a barrier. We first arrived at the lake, and along its edge we arrived at the beach, passing all the roadblocks.
