Emerald Lake

In this webcam, you can see Emerald Lake – one of the three lakes of such a famous tourist natural attraction of the Irkutsk region as Warm Lakes on the Snezhnaya River. In addition to the Emerald Lake in live broadcast, the group of warm lakes includes: Lake Toploye and Lake Skazka.

First of all, these places attract tourists with their pristine wild nature. The lake in the online camera is surrounded by relict pines and poplars. The shores of the Warm Lakes are occupied by hills, such as Mount Camel and Mount Monomakh’s Hat.

Lake Emerald, which you see online, is located in the south of Lake Baikal. The reservoir, shown in the webcam, is surrounded by coniferous forests, creating an atmosphere of mystery. This is a guarded area, so it is forbidden to stop here with tents.

On the shore of the lake in live broadcast, there are several buildings for those who wish to spend the night near the reservoir. There is a catering establishment. You can rent a catamaran at the tourist base.

In autumn, Lake Emerald, where the online stream is being conducted from, takes on an unusual look when the trees, changing their colors, lose their leaves that lie on the surface of the lake and decorate its emerald waters with yellow and red flowers. The high hill Khamar – Daban is also possible to see in the reflection of the lake.

Lake Emerald, which you see in real time, attracts tourists all year round. For example, ice fishing is popular here.

A striking attraction of the Emerald Lake is the Chapel of the Holy Prophet King Solomon, which is also shown by this webcam. It was built on the waterfront between 2012 and 2014.

As can be clearly seen online, the chapel fits perfectly into the landscape and adorns the Emerald Lake in the webcam. The religious building fascinates and beckons, causing the desire to get to it. This can be done by boat or catamaran. It is also possible to walk on the trail along the coast in this live cam. It is also possible to get to the mini-church by car along the federal highway M-55, bypassing the settlements of Kultuk, Slyudyanka, Baikalsk to the village of Vydrino, which is located on the border of the Irkutsk region and the Republic of Buryatia. You should use the M-55 Irkutsk – Ulan-Ude highway up to 182 km, and then turn right and drive five kilometers along the Snezhnaya River to the foothills of Khamar-Daban. Travel time from Irkutsk takes 2-3 hours. If you use the train, then you need to go to the Vydrino station.

The territory near the chapel is landscaped: there are benches. You should definitely go to the chapel and light a candle. There is a tourist base near the chapel, where the webcam is directed to.
