The amazing view of Big Almaty Lake

Big Almaty Lake is set high up in a gorge of the Bolshaya Almatinka River, 2,511 meters
above sea level and 28,5 km south of Almaty. It lies in a hollow like a gleaming mirror,
surrounded on all sides by majestic peaks. Three main peaks tower above the lake and
can be seen from the northern end of the dam: Sovetov (4,317 m) to the south-east,
Ozyorny (4,110 m) to the south, further up the river valley, and the forested slopes
of Turist (3,954 m) to the south-west. Located just in 25 km from the upper city boundary,
the Big Almaty Lake is one of the most beautiful mountain lakes in Trans-Ili Alatau.
