You'll have the opportunity to see unique patterns of transparent clear ice with a thickness of 1.5 m.

 On the island of Ogoi you'll visit the Buddhist stupa of The Great Awakening.

 By prostrating before a stupa, we turn our face away from our egos and toward our enlightened nature. By circumambulating—walking around the stupa in a clockwise fashion and reciting prayers—we keep the image of enlightenment at the center of our attention.

 Stupa is also a spiritual oasis, a place to refresh the spirit, gather strength and hope and connect with a deeper truth.  Just to see a stupa, to walk around it or to feel the wind blowing by it is a blessing.

 It is most beneficial to circumambulate a stupa, walking in a clockwise direction, at least three times, while reciting mantra or making heartfelt prayers for the benefit of loved ones, the state of the world, or all sentient beings.  Or you can also simply sit in front of a stupa and generate good thoughts, compassion and loving kindness for all beings.

 After lunch, you'll go to the peninsula Kobylya head where you can walk among the picturesque landscapes of the frozen lake.
