Big Almaty lake

The Big Almaty Lake is a picturesque place located at an altitude of 2500 meters in a necklace of mountain peaks with clear glacier melt water. Through a large pipe, water goes down and enters the city apartments. The lake is constantly changing its color, following the vagaries of changeable weather, from azure to dark blue. On the way back, you can drink aromatic tea in a traditional Kazakh yurt, taste delicious hatchins in a cafe on the banks of a mountain river, watch a vivid show “Falcon show” featuring feathered artists in the falconry’s nursery (daily, except Monday, at 17:00). The weather in the mountains is very changeable. I recommend that you always have a jacket and cap with you.
