Big Almaty Lake 1 day (5 hour trip)
Personal trip on an off-road vehicle

BAO is one of the most beautiful places near Almaty.
The lake is located in the mountains of the Trans-Ili Alatau at an altitude of 2511 m, the length of the lake is 1.5 km, and the depth reaches 40 m. Since this is an alpine lake, the water temperature in it, even in summer, is no more than 10 degrees.

The Big Almaty Lake was formed due to a strong earthquake, more than 3 thousand years ago.

Now it serves as a source of water for the city of Almaty, so there is a water protection zone here. A little higher than the lake on the Dzhusaly Kezen pass is the Tien Shan high-mountain scientific station or Cosmostation.

Big Almaty Lake is the most popular among tourists and residents of the city of Almaty, among the sights, as it is only a 40-minute drive from the city.
