There are three beautiful lakes near the village of Vydrino, Kabanskiy district of Buryatia – Izumrudnoye (Emerald), Skazochnoye (Fairytale) and Teploye (Warm). It is amazing that lakes are located close to each other, but, like brothers from Russian fairytales, three lakes differ in water composition and in appearance. The largest is Izumrudnoye. It has warm water, a camp site and a small chapel are built on the shore. Swimming, basking in the sun, fishing - what could be better on a day off? Also, you can climb the hill of the Monomakh’s Cap, take pictures of all three lakes, take a walk along the Snezhnaya River. If you have experience in climbing, you can go up to the Taltsinsky peak (it will take about one day).
