Moon Bay of Kanas Lake, Aletai

Between the borders of Kazakhstan, Russia, and Mongolia, experience postcard scenery at Moon Bay of Kanas Lake.

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.
