Tour Itinerary:

Day 1: Almaty - Kolsai Lakes.

Departure from Almaty at 07:00 am. Arrival to Saty Settlement at 12:00. Lunch. Transfer to Kaindy Lake. Sightseeing. Kaindy Lake (birch lake) is situated among magnificent pine forest at an altitude of 2000 meters above sea level and is famous for its origin. It was formed in 1911 due to the powerful earthquake that triggered the landslide blocked the alley by the natural dam, and the water has flooded the valley. The water of the lake is very cold, that is why the needles of the flooded trees are well preserved and clearly visible through the transparent surface of the water, and dry stems of fir trees overlook the water surface, like the masts of the submarine squadron. It is impossible to describe in words all this mystical splendour of the lake – it is necessary to go there and see everything with own eyes. Return to Saty Settlement, accommodation in the guest house. Dinner and sauna. Overnight in guest house.

Day 2: Kolsai Lakes.

Wake up at 07:00 am, breakfast. Transfer to the lake Kolsai-1. Trekking to the lake Kolsai-2. Lunch on the way. Kolsai Lakes - "Pearls of the Northern Tien-Shan" - represent a cascade of three lakes. The largest lake is accessible for all visitors. It is the most beautiful lake, having a lack of civilisation and the abundance of mushrooms. Horse lovers can order horseback tour to this place. The highest lake is small. It is located on the border of fir-wood and the alpine meadows and amazes by its harsh alpine beauty, as well as the rich flora and fauna. Vertical drop between the three lakes is about 700 meters. The lowest lake can be reached by car. But you should walk few Kilometers along mountain trails to see the second and the third lake. Without doubts the tourists are expected to have a wonderful vacation in these places - berries, mushrooms and fishing. The water in the lakes is cold and clean and is home for the rainbow trout - a fish that lives only in the running or spring water. In the around mountains you can see Marals, mountain goats, wolves and even bears. Return to the guest house. Dinner and sauna. Overnight in guest house.

Day 3: Kolsai Lakes - Almaty.

Breakfast. Departure to Almaty at 09:00 am. Sightseeing at the Moon Valley and Bestamak Canyon on the way. "Moon Valley" is a canyon, consisting of yellow clay. It is distinguished by the unique roundness of landscape and the lack of a single acute angle, that is why it is incredibly similar to the lunar surface, characterised by an exceptional streamlined forms. There is almost no rainfall in this area, but when the snow melts in the spring, the water appears for some time in sufficient amounts to soften the clay. As a result, the valley bottom is white and flat and the edges are formed by diffuse array of white colour. When you go to the bottom of the "lunar" crater, you feel yourself the first astronaut to set foot on the Moon and your insignificance in comparison with the large space object. Only Haloxylon indicates terrestrial origin of this place. Arrival to Almaty at 19:00.

Airfare is not included in the tour price.

Note: Group discounts available.
