Golubiye lakes

Golubiye Lakes are a group of lakes located 38 km from Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky, in the Nature Park called after them. The adjective “golubiye” means “light blue”. They were given that name because of the ice that is at its bottom and reflects the sun light. The color of the lake changes according to the season and the amount of ice in the lake. All the lakes are linked by a stream. It flows and makes a beautiful network of waterfalls. Polavinka River flows from the last lake. The mountain tundra in June and July strikes with its beautiful colors. Two special orchids grow in this landscape. The lady’s-slipper orchids are in the Kamchatka Red Book of protected species. The lakes are also famous for their rhododendrons. Golubiye Lakes are on the program of many day excursions.
