Salt lakes
The saline lakes of the Altai steppe have healing and health-improving properties. Once upon a time, millions of years ago, the sea was lapping here. Then everything changed, the processes of mountain building began, and the sea ceded its possessions, leaving in memory of itself the salt lakes, rich in marine heritage. The most famous in Altai are Bolshoye and Maloye Yarovoye lakes, as well as Gorko-Peresheechnoye, Malinovoye and others. Today, sanatoriums use highly mineralized brine and silt mud in the treatment of neurological, therapeutic, surgical, gynecological, and dermatological diseases.
