Plan Your Trip To Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky Reserve
April 15, 2015 17:12


Bogdinsko-Baskunchaksky Reserve is one of the youngest in Russia, it has existed since 1997. Even by the name you can guess the two main natural objects protected by the reserve – the Bolshoe Bogdo Mountain and the salt Baskunchak Lake. 
In order to get to the protected area, you must receive a pass (voucher). It can be issued directly at the cordon located next to the road leading from the village to the south, to the Bolshoe Bogdo Mountain.

Organized groups of 15 persons have to apply in advance (no later than 7 days prior to arrival, by fax, to e-mail: and or by the telephone 3-63-13), the application containing the following data: day and time of the scheduled trip, the number of people in the group. For getting the voucher the tour group leader must have a passport and a list of the tour participants.

Salt crystals stay on the skin after immersion in brine, therefore you need to wash them off. Shower cubicles near the lake are few, not too comfortable and not too attractive. If you do not want to take a shower in the plank shed, bring a lot of water with you. Anyway, you cannot do there without fresh water capacity. The locals are responsive, willing to talk about the village, show where to go, how to get to the nearest bathe. But you should not walk through the village at night - drunk young people are not too friendly. You cannot spend the night in a tent on the shore of the lake – it is a conservation area. You can stay in the village of Nizhny Baskunchak - in the “Bassol” hotel or “Baskunchak” health resort.
