This tour is a great opportunity to escape from the bustle of the city. The road to the Big Almaty lake is very marvelous – as soon as you leave the city, the view outside the window impresses you more and more. Meandering road goes higher and higher where fresh mountain air and a beautiful lake reflecting snowcapped mountain peaks are awaiting for you.
The Big Almaty lake is located at an altitude of 2511 meters above sea level, and if you go a little further on the paved road, it seems that you are very far from civilization, in the wild Tien Shan mountains. Perhaps that is why BAL is included in the list of landmarks that are all Almaty guests should definitely visit. Here you can take a walk along the coastline or go further into the mountains, towards the border with Kyrgyzstan. No matter which walks option you choose, you can be sure of one thing – you will definitely like a trip to the Big Almaty Lake.
The tour starts from your hotel in Almaty. After the tour, the guide will accompany you back to the hotel, or to any other point in the city.
