    Chokrak Lake is a true natural wonder. It is one of the most popular locations for pelotherapy, probably one of the oddest centuries-old rituals for attending to one's health – bathing in mud.

    Russia’s Republic of Crimea boasts a number of remarkable tourist attractions and stunning natural wonders. Chokrak Lake, situated on the Kerch Peninsula near Kurortnoye, is one of them. The secret of its popularity isn’t in its beauty – which is doubtless – but in its healing mud.

    Chokrak Lake, also known as Chokrakskoe Lake or Misir, is situated in eastern Crimea, on the Kerch Peninsula near the settlement of Kurortnoye. This saline lake is a pure source of health: its waters and mud have been known for their curative properties since ancient times.
