The tropical-looking landscape is close to the Russian city of Novosibirsk, where winter temperatures drop to minus 40C.

The vision has been created entirely by a nearby brown coal boring power plant that generates electricity.

The clear blue water has a high PH and contains dissolved metal oxides.

The name is translated as Lake Ash Dump – and he receives the waste from the nearby power plant called TPP-5 and is owned by the Siberian Generating Company.

The electric blue waters of the artificial lake are formed by a chemical reaction of the waste from the power plant.

The company warned: & # 39; We beg you not to fall into the ash dump in the pursuit of selfies. That is the greatest danger. & # 39;

Swimming is being surveyed and visitors who flock to the tropical-looking site are being warned by the company that a walk along the beach here is like walking on a military training ground – dangerous and unwanted.

They are told: & # 39; This is not a city beach – there are no lifeguards on the coast and no …

# The water in the asdump is not for drinking, but technically, that is, it contains dissolved salts of calcium and other metal oxides, as well as a high pH.

& # 39; This water is only used to transport ash.

& # 39; Skin contact with such water can cause local allergic reactions due to high mineralization. & # 39;

There are denials that it is a threat to life, but the authorities are trying to keep the flow of visitors away from the lake.

Ecological campaigner Ulyana Artamonova was filmed as if she were on a tropical beach, but she said: & # 39; After my visit my face was covered with a small rash. & # 39;

She suffered from & # 39; a dry throat and nose & # 39 ;.

Visitors say the soles flake off their sandals after walking along the waterline, the Siberian Times.

Photographer Mikhail Reshetnikov said: “When you drive to this lake, there is a very strong smell of washing detergent, of alkali …

& # 39; Of course there is no desire to touch such water.

& # 39; You just feel that this is not a safe place. & # 39;

Another local said: & # 39; It is certainly not Chernobyl, but still unsafe. & # 39;
