The Lake Bottomless is the deepest lake in Sverdlovsk region, and it is located in the neighborhood of the city of Nizhny Tagil. The lake has the oval form, by the size small: about 200-300 meters. Its maximum depth makes 49 meters, and average – 25 meters.

The lake called bottomless as in the past, trying to measure its depth, locals couldn't get to the bottom. From here the legend of bottomlessness of the lake and, respectively, his name was born.

So deep water of the lake at its small area can be explained with the fact that it has a karst origin. Earlier on his place there was a calcareous karst failure which was gradually filled with water from the underground rivers. Water in the lake pure, transparent also has an unusual greenish shade.

It is possible to swim in the lake, but with extreme care as in it a lot of the sunk trees. Because coast abrupt, and the deep water, is better to dive into the lake at once from the coast. In the summer when the water surface gets warm, and at a depth water remains cold, it is possible to feel temperature border accurately. This border is at a depth of 3-4 meters. More deeply than 5 meters water has constant temperature all the year round, equal 5-6 o S.

The lake connects to the river the Boundary Duck through a stream which follows from his east part. On spring through this stream fish passes into the Bottomless lake. Also on the bank of the lake there is a place where there is a rocky exposure of the small size, call him "the Big Stone".

The bottomless lake is recognized as a hydrological nature sanctuary and included in structure of the natural park "River Chusovaya". It is impossible to drive up to the lake on the car thanks to what it remained pure and practical not touched by a human civilization. The Bottomless lake is surrounded with the most beautiful wood.
