Kanas Lake, Burqin County

4.8
#1 of 6 in Nature in Burqin County
Enjoy the remoteness and serenity of the area surrounding Kanas Lake, formed by glacial movement over 200,000 years ago. The crescent-shaped lake sits in a valley surrounded by tree-covered hills. Over 170 bird species inhabit the lakeshore, making this an ideal spot for getting to know the country's varied animal life. If bird-watching seems a bit passive, engage in popular recreational activities like rock climbing, paragliding, camping, or hiking.
