Big Almaty Lake + Furmanov Peak Hike

Big Almaty Lake + Furmanov Peak Hike

Almaty is an amazing city and Almatinians are a lucky bunch. Few cities can boast being the largest, most productive and important metropolis of a country and have great nature just outside the city outskirts. One such natural darling in Almaty is the Big Almaty Lake (BAL, BAO) located high in the mountains about 25km from the city. Not only is the lake breathtakingly beautiful, it also is literally the source of drinking water for the megapolis's 2 million inhabitants. 

If Kazakhstan was really the greatest country in the world, ... nah, who am I kidding?! IT IS! Don't believe me? Then read "Apples are from Kazakhstan: The Land that Disappeared" by Christopher Robbins and then go gaze at this beautiful lake. Then tell me if there is a better place in the world than the birthplace of apples.
