Sea Eye Lake, Shariboksad

#2 of 10 in Parks in Mari El Republic
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 .
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.

  • We came and we look at this beautiful lake. It was a cloudy day and it was not possible to go down. Nearby is a village where you can even rent a house. At the time of arrival in the lake bathed. Very beautiful nature, forest.

  • Let's go to the car. From Kazan an hour and a half. Asphalt norms. You can drive to the lake from the side of the village and from the fields. The lake is cool, but it would not hurt to remove fallen trees, and generally ennoble. Shops there, steps, parking, tent with souvenirs.
