Black lake in Montenegro

In Montenegro a large number of lakes, but the second most popular after striking the Skadar lake, is undoubtedly the Black lake. It’s a tourist attraction, and it really deserves your attention because of its beauty and picturesqueness.

Actually, the Black lake in Montenegro consists of two separate lakes — Large and Small lakes, which are interconnected by a narrow channel. In the summer it dries up, and in the spring, when the snow descend from the surrounding mountains, the lake noticeably increased in size and turns into one.

Two interconnected lakes form a sort of eye for what the locals call them the “eyes of the mountains”. The name Black lake probably took place from that surrounding the mountains here are thickly overgrown with Continue reading

Ice field of the TRANS-ili Alatau

First, Sergei Ivanovich turned to the zone, where cloudiness was less often, and could pass through the passes:

Morena – this geological formation, which appears as a result of glacial deposits. It is a heterogeneous mixture – from the huge boulders of several hundred meters in diameter to clay material, formed by grinding of rocks during the movement of the glacier. Overall, this is a kind of porous structure of heaps of fragments of rocks, cemented with ice. A kind of “sponge” in the highlands, which absorbs water.

The glaciers, as if glued to the rock as a result of year-round low temperatures. Some ice masses that hang over the cliffs, almost vertically.

Here are lakes and represent the main danger. In the case of overflow water can melt gluing the rock crystal ice and to find a channel, into which falls the entire volume of the natural reservoir. Something similar happened the other day in the basin of Karga linka . Interestingly, the water of this lake out for a few hours.
