% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.


Russian researchers have reached the bottom of Labynkyr, one of the coldest lakes on Earth with temperatures at minus 70 celsius.



 It is widely known as Russia’s Loch Ness as legend says it has its own cryptozoological monster but the divers did not find any proof.


Kosmopoisk ( “All-Russian Research Public Organization”), also known as Spacesearch, is a self-styled group with interests in ufology, cryptozoology, and other mystery investigations. It started in 1980, and expanded in 2001 to an international movement. In 2004, it registered under the name All-Russian Scientific Organization. Many of the activities are in the form of expeditions to sites that are reputed to have extraterrestrial activity or unusual creatures.

Kosmopoisk, in the 1990s, the group made expeditions an annual event. To save costs, they would hitchhike as a main way of traveling. For instance, in 1999, the group made an expedition to the remote Labynkyr Lake in Yakutia, Sakha Republic, where an underwater monster, similar to Nessie, has been believed to exist since the 1960s. They hitchhiked the Kolyma federal road to get to Labynkyr Lake in Yakutia. They then collected their results of anomalous events into a database.

In September 2012, Russian scientists called on the international community to undertake a comprehensive study of karst lakes such as Labynkyr in eastern Yakutia, near the world famous Oymyakon. Underwater radar recorded a big movable object about 10 feet in length. It is assumed that this is  a living creature. It received the name “Ness”. Scientists were amazed when they saw it on their devices! Meanwhile, every day the story of the Yakut “Ness” acquires new sensational details.

According to the testimony of two fishermen,the nose of their 10-foot boat began to rise, as if someone had pushed her out of the water. Because it was a heavy boat, it could only be done by a huge and powerful animal. The fishermen were numb with fear. But they did not see anything, neither head nor the body of the monster that lives in those parts of Yakutia and Evenkia whre people have long argued about the existence of the underwater monster in the lake, often called  the “lake devil.”

Perhaps we will soon witness a new scientific discovery! The Russian scientists have urged the world community to carry out researchin Lake Labynkyr located in the east of Yakutia near to world famous Oimyakon. The Russian village of Oymyakon has the lowest recorded temperatures for any permanently inhabited location. Nothing grows there so locals live off diet of reindeer meat and horse meat but never suffer malnourishment.

The latest expedition made no sighting of the reputed monster.  Here is a video report from Pravda in Russian.
