The Big Almaty lake
If you have only one day in Almaty but wish to enjoy with the beauty of mountain nature and get bright impression, the Big Almaty lake is the best place to visit.
It located only 15 km from Almaty and takes 1 hour to get there. The atitude is over 2500 meters/8200 ft. above the sea level. The clean, bright deep blue lake surrounding with snow covered peaks is really exiting sight. The color of the lake is changing depends on the season. As it is water reserves for the city it is forbidden to walk to the shore.
It is possible to make a trekking around the lake for 3-5 hours or go further up to Observatory or Kosmostation.
I welcome you to experience it.
