I made a similar trip to Shaitan Lake not so long ago. group of extremals from Astana led by Yersain Shygaev.


Newspapers wrote about the mysterious Shaitankol Lake at the end. nineteenth – early twentieth centuries. Since in his all devilry happened and people disappeared, in 1905 year, it was decided to consecrate the reservoir, and then rename it Holy However, it was not so easy to do this.

There is still a legend according to which once on the shore of the mysterious reservoir the famous Kazakh hero Er spent the night Targyn. At night he was awakened by a naked girl of unprecedented beauty, and lured into the lake. In the pond itself, a beautiful stranger suddenly turned into a terrible old woman who clawed her claws into a young man and dragged him deep.

Lake without bottom

There is still a legend that Lake Shaitankol has no bottom. This is exactly the first thing they decided to check the extremals of the group Ersain Shygaev. Sailing in an inflatable boat in the middle of the pond, they began to lower the load on a rope three hundred meters long. Homemade the lot completely went under water, and never reached the bottom.

After that, young people remembered that the locals they were warned – swimming in Devil’s Lake is impossible, it’s bottomless, and the waters in it are dark and dangerous. Dumbfounded by the bottomless pond, hastily pulling the cargo out of the water, extreme people nevertheless did not calmed down on this. Ersain Shygaev, as an experienced driver, captured scuba gear, and therefore sank under the water. Water, he recalls, in the lake was crystal clear, the bottom is very beautiful and welcoming, however on in the middle of the pond there was a terrible abyss over which the driver did not dare to swim.

Courageous and a healthy extremal man was so terrified that he even vaguely remembers how he hurriedly jumped out of the tent and rushed where eyes are looking. And around was a thick, completely unnatural fog. Once at the edge of the forest, the team leader calmed down a bit and here, to his surprise, he found his comrades trembling.

Peering out, the guys saw that their leader’s tent a strange process stretches, black and clearly alive, very similar to a snake, he just hung in the air and snaked as if from nowhere.
