Welcome! I am your virtual tour guide around the world. I have prepared for you an overview of Issyk lake and wine tour.
Review and Facts:
This alpine lake (2510m) is located in a depression 25km south of Almaty. Like a sparkling mirror, surrounded on all sides by majestic peaks. Depending on the time of year, the lake changes its color - from light green to turquoise-blue. The Bolshaya Almatinka River flows into it and flows out. Around the lake there is a wild, unique beauty of nature: moraines, scree, rocks, slender Tien Shan firs.
The length of the lake is 1.5 km, depth is 35m. Above the lake is the Tien Shan Astronomical Observatory (2,700 m) and the space station (3,300 m), where you can watch the celestial bodies for the night.
The road to the lake is very picturesque and beautiful. She passes by slender spruce and mixed forests, in the summer with enchanting freshness of greenery, and in the fall with her bright colors! The tape serpentine, then dives under the canopy of trees, then winds along a steep slope above the gorge.
