Kapchagay Reservoir serves as a favorite weekend resort for Almaty residents. The 140 km (87 mi) long reservoir features a stretch of sandy shore lined with numerous casinos. Although the reservoir boosts the local economy and draws many tourists, it also has as disruptive impact on the ecosystem, reducing the level and the quality of the water in the nearby lake and making the surrounding land unsuitable for farming.

  • There are a number of private beaching charging around 3-5 USD for entry with a car. Public beaches are more popular, but there is no restrooms there. Great for tanning and swimming during summertime. 
  • The road from Almaty. The territory of akvaprka you can go by car. Admission is charged. Well-groomed territory, benches and bed a la sovdepiâ, but in a huge number that pleases. There are baby pools and slides. Children's plaŝadki also available. Weak public catering with an inflated price. Pravda permit. Coating pools-painted concrete. The water is clean. Adequate staff. Compare it with the water parks of Tashkent and Emirates is pointless. In common does not iskušenyi people please. Family with children mlen′kimi in the heat of summer can be a good time.

  • The scenery is simply amazing. It is hard to think that this place is man made. Very quiet and a must see destination if you are in the Almaty area.
