Travel: Tuim washout, Russia

Good day, my dear friends and readers!

Today I introduce you to an unordinary place in Tuim, Russia.


Tuim washout in Khakassia is visited by almost all tourists. It is located on the outskirts of Tuim. Here come tourists traveling by car. To the Tuimskiy Washout, excursions are organized practically in all places of rest in Khakassia.

What kind of miracle is this, that everyone here aspire? It turned out that this is a man-made miracle. The work of human hands. The Tuimsky Washout was formed as a result of the technogenic Tymsky washout. And today it is a large pit on the top of the mountain Mednaya or Kiyalykh-Uzen, which in translation from the local language means “Wayward Log”.

The length of this pit is about four hundred meters, and the width is up to two hundred meters. The walls of the pit are almost vertical and constantly crumbling. The height of the Tuim Washout to the water is about one hundred and twenty meters. At the bottom of the collapse, a lake was formed. The depth of the lake in the gap is more than one hundred and thirty meters. The water of the lake has a bright blue color.
