Day 7. Trips to the surroundings (Lukovaya glade). This glade is inhabited by marmots. They are very curious and let you take pictures from a 3-meter distance. These chunky and shaggy animals make heart-rending noise and swing fluffy tails when rushing to their holes. Funny creatures!
Day 8. Trips to the surroundings (lakes). The terrain of the place is so diverse. Each hill and each small mountain hides a lake behind fit in a hollow between the convexities. These lakes are suitable for swimming! There are many of them scattered across the valley, each having its own color pattern.
