Waste disposal area of the 'turquoise lake' thermal power plant, the new favorite of those who want to take a selfie in Siberia
It has been announced that the "turquoise lake", which has become a popular destination for those who want to take a selfie with its tropical appearance in Siberia, is actually the area to unload the ashes of a nearby thermal power plant. Tourists were called to stay away from the region.
It is stated that the lake, which draws attention with its resemblance to the Maldives Islands and which is known as "Novosibirsk Maldives", takes its color from calcium salts and other metal oxides.
Although the company that operates the power plant warns visitors not to approach the water, it is observed that the region has become more and more popular with photos shared on social media. Newly married couples pose here with their wedding dresses and grooms.
Another user wearing a ski mask and posing on an inflatable unicorn in the lake is cynical "It is not dangerous to swim here. The next day my legs blushed, itchy for two days. But they all passed. It's worth the photos. By the way, the taste of water it was a little bit painful. "
"But of course I did not get into the water. I just stood by and watched the view. I do not recommend contacting the water. It may cause allergies," said Alexey.
"The alkalinity of the water is very high. Therefore, it dissolves in calcium salts and other metal oxides. The contact of your skin with water can create an allergic reaction," the warning said.
It was stated in the company statement that the bottom of the lake is in the form of slime and those who try to swim may not be able to get out of here, and in capital letters, "DO NOT GO TO THE LAKE FOR SELFIE FOR THIS REASON".
