Overview
Almaty is lucky to be one of the few cities in the world to have such unique and diverse surroundings as mountain ranges, sky peaks, coniferous forests, rough rivers, picturesque deserts, ancient canyons and many other natural wonders. Big Almaty Lake is definetely one of the brightest sights among all of that. Its pristine water changing colour depending on the season, astonishing mountain peaks encircling the lake from all sides, thick ever-green forests make an unforgettable impression especially on the first time visitors. Come and enjoy this primeval nature with us!
