Big Almaty Lake
Make a visit to the natural alpine reservoir of Big Almaty Lake, a famous alpine lake just slightly outside Almaty. The lake's temperature is 8-10 degree Celsius and swimming is prohibited here.
Located in the gorge of Big Almatinka River, the Big Almaty Lake is without a doubt a major highlight of the Trans-Ili Alatau National Park. Rising at 2,510 meters above sea level, this alpine lake is a truly picturesque sight to behold.
