Nestling in a hollow at 2500 meters above sea level, surrounded by snow-capped peaks, Big Almaty Lake is one of the best places to see in Almaty. Located in the southern mountainous part of the city, the lake is easily accessible by car and it takes around 1 hour to reach the point. Over there from viewing platform one can enjoy the natural beauty of the lake and its surrounding area.
Moreover, one can enjoy pure downhill cycling from the lake up to the Almaty airport. It is full of adrenaline and bloody risky.
