The Lake Upkanny-Kul
The lake itself is an old channel of one of the most beautiful rivers in Bashkortostan, called the Ufa River. Here grows water nut. People have been eating it since the ancient times as some nutshells were found during the excavations of places inhabited during the Paleolithic Age. Besides, the lake Upkanny-Kul is the only place in the republic where this plant grows. In the bushes near the lake one can often find cranes, herons and ducks nesting in there.
