The landscape reserve of national significance “Blue Lakes” was created in 1972 to protect a unique natural complex that includes a river and a dozen lakes. Later it became part of the Narochansky National Park. Steep ravines and hills, a winding forest river, a light pine forest and several lakes at once-all this can be seen by passing the ecotrope. The ecological route passes through the Stracha River and the Glublu, Glubelka and Dead Lakes. Glubelya has a bluish-green hue of water, in the lake Glubelka, water from the bottom has not been mixed with the surface for several thousand years. The Dead Lake will be interesting to fans of mysticism – according to legend, the Vikings buried dead warriors here-hence the name. In fact, hydrogen sulfide is concentrated at the bottom of a deep lake.
