Big Almaty Lake, 30km south of Almaty, is like a shining
mirror reflecting the sky and mountains on its surface, surrounded on all sides
by magnificent mountain peaks. The lake changes colour depending on the season,
from pale green to turquoise blue. This is a very good place for picnic, hiking
or intensive trekking. Good spot to start your trekking route to Issyk-Kul
lake or Chimbulak.
