scenic landscape

be overpopulated, and it makes sense to explore smaller (as well as more distant) lakes in the area. The coastline is also sandy and beautiful, although the ocean is too cold for swimming. Come here to watch the sunrise and enjoy the scenic landscape. Finally, there is a salt lake ''Izmenchivoe'' (''Changing''), the place of mud baths. :''Getting there:'' ''Ohotskoe'' village, the largest settlement in the area, is located between Tunaycha and Izmenchivoe. It is reachable by car, by bus (#174), and by minibuses. thumb 300px Mud Volcano (File:Sakhalin mud Volcano 5.jpg) * '''Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk Mud Volcano'''. This sight (20 km north-west from the city) consists of several cones within a 15-acre (6 hectares) site of volcanic mud which erupt periodically. In many places you can see fumaroles bubbling through the mud. :''Getting there:'' arrange with a tour operator or try to reach this place on your own. Take one of the two daily trains to ''Novoderevenskaya'' station and follow the abandoned railway track in the western direction (9 km; to pass through tunnels, a lantern would be helpful). Alternatively, take the bus to the village ''Klyuchi'' and then another 9 km walk. Detailed description of the route is here (in Russian). The road directly to the volcano may be very dirty and impassable for regular cars. wikipedia:Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk
