Another similar lake is Tunaycha, Sakhalin's second largest lake. Its shores are a nesting place for a huge variety of birds –even rare ones, such as the white-tailed eagle and mandarin duck.

You can admire the island's gorgeous lakes from the summit of Lyagushka mountain or Chekhov Peak.

If you are looking to visit Sakhalin's mountain lakes, Spamberg Mountain is the place for you. Mountain springs are numerous here, constantly feeding the mountain's many rivers and waterfalls.

The lakes of the Ainu Lowlands are yet another place of interest in the western part of Sakhalin. It offers incredible views on the high peaks of Mount Ichara and Mount Krasnov.
