ATV-safari "Bath sources"

Big Bath sources are known from the time of S.P. Krasheninnikov visit (1737-1740). They are located on the floodplain terrace of the left bank of the river “Bath” and presented to 24 groups on the thermal area (1,5 km). There are more than 550 boiling, bubbling, flowing, sometimes with the spa regime, centered, less often - scattered output of thermal water and mud pots. The walls of some griffins and grounds around them are covered with siliceous sinter. Strong plate of geyserite, exposed above the water's edge in the river “Bath” shows former activity of these sources. The chemical composition of water sources is primarily sodium sulfate with total mineralization 0,7-1,4 g / l with a silica content of up to 300 mg / liter. Spontaneous gas is dominated by nitrogen and CO2. Very small amounts of boron and arsenic is present in the water and geysers.

Small Bath springs are located in 5 km away from «Big bath”, also in the upper river «Bath» (left bank), on the right bank of the river Small Key. Visible output of hot water with temperatures up to 76 ° C are concentrated  in a small area (about 36 m2), where  a warm stream begins. In places of the outputs of thermal water on the pebbles outputs of white salts (sulfates and geysers) are formed  and around the exits - the usual thermophilic algae. The chemical composition of water, like «Big Bath sources», is sodium sulfate.
