This place is really hard to get to one, that's why it's unique. After 5-7 km of mounting hiking you will get to the marvelous seven-lakes valley framed with circus of the Iolgo ridge. Karakolsky Lakes have a glacier-tectonic origin. The lowest lake is situated at 1800 m above sea level, the highest one is at almost 2100 m, and it is considered to be healing... The higher the lakes are, the smaller and colder they get. The length o f the biggest lake is 440 m, and width is 350 m. Cold and pure streams are connecting all the lakes, giving the Sun no chances to warm the water up. There are just few types of water plants and no fish at all. The best View point is the snowy top of the mountain circus. ... read more

Two Mitsubishi Delicas took on ten people - three crew members and seven photographers, colored trunks with equipment and jerry cans with water on the roofs.

Olivier showed several techniques of using reflectors and shooting pictures for magazines while guides made breakfast and bundled camps. ... read more
