Kolsay Lakes

Hi!!!!!! I want to say you more information about Kolsay Lakes. Last summer I was at Kolsay Lakes. For me at was a great time with my friend. We got their buy jeeps, it was very fascinating. When we a arrived there I saw a beautiful nature and I feel that I’am a part of this beatiful piece of nature.

The sky-blue Kolasy lakes are located in the Kazakh part of the Kungey Alatau Range of the Central Tien-Shan in the far south-east the country some 250 km from Almaty. There are excellent trekking and hiking option around and between these fascinating mountain lakes.

About 3-4 hours from Almaty the first Kolsay lake is accessible by road with any normal vehicle. A small fee is applicable for vehicles and passengers to the local Zakaznik staff. Zhibek Zholy runs a very nice but pricey guesthouse and sauna on the Eastern slopes of the first lake, there are simple huts, guides and horses available from the local staff, but wekends should be avoided.
The relatively tough hike to the 2nd lake takes about 3-5 hours depending on the weather conditions. Season to visit for hiking is Mid May through October. Lake Kolsay is the starting point for most Kazakhstan-based organised horseback riding across the passes to lake Issyk Kul in Kyrgyzstan.
