The Teletskoe lake (Altai mountains) in Russia is not only one of the most profound and beautiful, but also mystical. This pond took the lives of thousands of people who were victims of not only their own carelessness, but also very scary circumstances.
The maximum depth of lake Teletskoye is fascinating – as much as 325 meters. Experts tell us that fish in this lake do not fall below 100 meters, because then there is cold and darkness. So it turns out that often the bodies of drowned on lake Teletskoye people do not find.
Divers with experience tell us that the body of the deceased very quickly, that is, preserved. Some of the divers that were solved at maximum immersion, did a terrible conclusion. After all, they ran across a large number of dead people and animals.

On Board the aircraft were five people, including former Deputy Prime Minister of the Altai Republic Anatoly Bannykh and the President’s Plenipotentiary representative in the state Duma Alexander Kosopkin. None of them could not be found, as the helicopter crashed into the lake where the depth exceeds 200 metres. The search operation continued for several weeks with no results it brought.
Another tragic case on lake Teletskoye was the usual tour of hydrofoil model “Volga”. View the unique nature of the Altai mountains went 12 turystov. Among them was 11-year-old girl and two teenagers. At some point the water the boat capsized. All were on it, people died. Their bodies were only found two months after the incident.
