Big Almaty Lake is one of the most popular destinations of townspeople in the weekends. People are attracted here by beautiful nature, fresh mountain air, the forest, and, of course, the lake itself. One of the most picturesque lakes in Trans-Ili Alatau lies in a hollow, on all sides surrounded by mountain peaks, covered with Tien Shan spruce, aspen and juniper. Like most mountain lakes, it was formed about 2000 years ago due to an ancient glacier, which is retreating left a moraine, further filled in with the melt water. Big Almaty Lake is interesting in all seasons. Even in winter, when its water surface is covered with ice and snow, it delights with its spaciousness and mystery. After the lake you will head to Tuyuk-Su glacier, passing by the Institute of High Energy of the Academy of Sciences of Kazakhstan, or the Space Station, as it called by townspeople.
