Big Almaty Lake, tour 1 day

Powerful vehicleIntroduction:

The city of Almaty lies between two large gorges, the Big Almaty gorge and the Small Almaty gorge. That's just over the Great Almaty gorge we go to the Big Almaty lake, we pass an ecological post, we pay about 2usd per person. The road gradually raises us along the picturesque gorge.

Periodically, on the side of good asphalt, stone piles arise, sometimes overgrown with young trees. These are the remains of the mudflows that descended here, which visit this part of the gorge every 10-15 years. The road is first sloping, turns into a steep serpentine. Mixed forest is replaced, Tian-Shan spruce.

 Big Almaty Lake is located 28 km south of Almaty. Height above sea level is 2511m. Depth of 35 m, the volume of water around - 14 million cubic meters. The water level in the lake varies greatly depending on the season.
