  • It is a lake surrounded by mountains can go in three hours or so by car from Almaty. Beautiful cobalt blue water and lush green mountains contrast is striking. Disturb the way in Lenin's painting art. To swim, but I went to the summer thaw water so may be a bit cold.

  • Much to my regret, it is a great place for piece of nature turns into charges (fees) of money and neglected. Few people know that before the year 1963 there were ROUND base, PIONEER CAMPS and tent CAMPING! This is where TOURISTS walked along the Gorge in the mountain to watch the beauty of nature! The Gorge flows the river turbulent with very picturesque shores. When he reached the House of Forester, you get to wide flood River where the most daring and hardened can take a dip in the crystal clear water! And instead of barbecue and picnic, sit on warm rocks and drink from thermos Cup of tea with sandwiches while listening to the murmur of the river and admire the surrounding beauty of the Gorge! Recommend such trips round annually, except for the period (mid-April to mid-June), when MITES are especially active! PEOPLE, PRESERVE NATURE and DO NOT LEAVE garbage, PLEASE!

  • Very beautiful and picturesque place. Very convenient, you are not afraid for his suspension. Very cold Lake, summer heat thing what would take a break from everyday life, lots of space, there is a resteraunt does not have to sit on top of each other. There are lines where you can have a great time.

  • On Lake fresh 25 degrees. The city was 40. Beautiful scenery. The lake water is cool. Gathered spontaneously. On the way we stopped in yesik in pizzeria Dodo, right on the turn to the Lake. Dialed pizza, coffee, sweets. The guys all packed into a container. In General not starving and with food not nice to stay there.
