Moon Bay of Kanas Lake, Aletai

Between the borders of Kazakhstan, Russia, and Mongolia, experience postcard scenery at Moon Bay of Kanas Lake. Take a calming boat ride across the color-changing, crescent-shaped lake to see it all from another perspective. Explore each of the bays along the lake's perimeter to discover a variety of uncommon wildlife and vibrant forests. The prime time to visit is between August and October for crystal clear views. However, in late October the snow-capped mountains and mist create an enchanted landscape.
