The Mushyl lake, nicknamed the Sea Eye is a minor karst lake in Shariboksad, Volzhsky District, Mari El, Russia. Located at the foot of the hill its bright green water is extremely deep compared to the surface area .Sea Eye Lake is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Shariboksad Edition.
Müšyl means crater in the Mari language. In early documents it was known only by its Mari name, written in the Russian text with Mari diacritics. Later, Russian-speaking tourists were inspired by the sea-like colour of the water to give it the more poetic Russian name.
According to Mari legend, a wedding procession fell into the Sea Eye and died when it suddenly appeared in an eruption.
The lake has become popular with tourists.

At the time of arrival in the lake bathed. Very beautiful nature, forest.

The lake is cool, but it would not hurt to remove fallen trees, and generally ennoble. Shops there, steps, parking, tent with souvenirs.
There is no normal road from Kazan, unfortunately
It's a beautiful place and nature. The lake is of unusual color. The clear lake color is beautiful.
