Ivano-Arakhleisky Reserve (Zakaznik) is located 70 kms from Chita city. This Zakaznik was created to protect the natural lake ecosystems associated with the most heavily utilized recreation area in the Chita Region. In one year this Natural Landscape Reserve was visited by more than 150 thousand people utilizing numerous camps for rest or a "wild" adventure. This Zakaznik protects and minimizes human impact on the land and lake waters, with a priority to prevent unauthorized construction and pollution of the lakes’ shorelines.
