On the morning of the third day, we leave Lake Lugan and head towards Lake Zakan. The weather is still excellent, around a perfectly clean sky, blinding sun and alpine meadows on the slopes of the Juha mountain range. Soon it will end, because we have to go to the zone of +3000.

About the sun separately. It not only blinds, but also fries. July is not the hottest month, the worst is August. But in July in the mountains it is not easy, you have to coat all open areas of the body with cream several times a day so as not to lose your skin. At the same time, it is not hot in the mountains, although you quickly sweat from walking. There are strong winds. The ideal option is a long-sleeved T-shirt and light windbreaker. But leave the details and enjoy the beauty of nature.
Here, by the way, we met the first bear, but we didn’t have time to take a picture - quickly runs away, five seconds - and he is already a point on an inaccessible peak.

A little about the lake from Mitya Andreeva:
Lake Zakan lies in the northwestern circus of Damhurz. The lake is located at an altitude of 2653 m above sea level. m. and has the shape of a regular crescent. On the north side, the lake is edged with a high bolt cut by a wide stream, and from the south a vast terminal moraine goes into the lake - a memory of the former dimensions of the Damhurts Glacier. The water in the lake in any weather is an amazing turquoise color, so the lake is already striking from a distance. The surface of the water surface of the lake is almost 25,000 m. Lake Zakan, like the lake Damhurts, is fed by the nearby glacier. Hydronim Zakan is first encountered in the works of Yu.V. Efremova in the 1990s.
Once there was a glacier on the site of the lake, then it retreated, forming a depression that was filled with water, so Lake Zakan appeared.
We could not fully enjoy the amazing turquoise. The beginning of July - the lake just got rid of ice and snow. And that is not completely ...

Forward and upward - to the Damhurz mountain massif!
From Lake Zakan we go up the snowfield. Then I first regretted not taking the glasses.it turns out that the sun in the mountains not only fries, but also blinds be healthy. If there are no goggles, you have to maximally squint your eyes to the size of a small slit in order to at least see something, otherwise you can then wear dark glasses like Marshal Jaruzelski until the end of life.
Well, and, of course, walking a few hours up in the wet, sticky snow is not the most pleasant pleasure in life. Here, by the way, I realized that trekking sticks in the mountains are practically meaningless garbage, but the ice ax is an excellent and multifunctional thing. I broke the stick almost immediately in the snowdrifts, and when I slid down my ass on the snowfield.

On the other side of the ridge below us is Lake Damhurts. The height at which it is located is 2669 meters. The lake has an area of ​​22,700 square meters. m. But this time we will not go down, and we will admire the lake from above:

Higher and higher, and now we descend to a wide plateau, on which the airfield could well be located. It offers absolutely amazing views.

We spend the night here. In the morning, we will have to climb up to +3000, then descend into the valley of the Juha River and climb up to the Big Juhinsky Lake again.

Why, in the evening we first met a living person. And on the ridge height of three kilometers.The man looked down on us for a while, and then went to the other side. Apparently he was in a hurry to catch his own camp before sunset, it was necessary to descend there a lot, it was getting dark quickly in the mountains, and to spend the night on icy, blown by all winds tops of three thousand meters is a bad idea.
We wondered for a long time who it could be. The border guards have nothing to do there, tourists do not go here, in fact, there are literally a dozen people in the whole of Sochi who know these places and could take someone there. We were alone in these mountains. Is that ... the clerk of the reserve! Bingo. They climb the mountains year-round and consider bison, bears, and deer. But we will meet them tomorrow ...

The first time I saw these pictures, although they are already five years old. Slugs unreal scarlet! It is strange, why such a color. They will be noticeable for anyone who wants to devour them.
