  • Dam beautifully blended into the natural landscape. It is a pity that the visit itself is impossible to dam, you can admire the spectacular views from the observation deck. Impressed with his Platinum bypass Canal, executed stage manner. Made it to accidental discharge of water to bypass the dams, but in my visits to such dumping was not, had to take pictures of dry feed. On the observation deck made a magnificent monument to the conquerors of the Yenisei River. If you would like to visit the dam, then tack with a clasp, there is a place where it attach to the memory of this attractions.

  • After the dam at n.p. Lane was disappointed-it is impossible to visit the top of the dam. There is no affordable cafes (still far to travel). In addition to the monument builders, no lookout (cafes, shops, some trails for the review above). In a clear day lunch dam lookout at all merges in a bleak wall, terminating in the afternoon haze. The road to the dam beautiful views of cliffs.
