You will face breathtaking mountain peaks 4 thousand meters high where the snow never melts. A pristine Almaty canyon will open its way to the most majestic work of local nature - Big Almaty Lake. The lake made up of glacial water appears in a unique scenery in each of the seasons. And its winter decoration is always especially picturesque: a snow-covered surface, cenuries-old trees dressed in white hats and surreal graphics of the gorge. Since September 2023, authorities banned driving up to Big Almaty Lake for environmental reasons. In this regard, a journey includes a uphill distance of 5 km. The climbing difficulty is average. Upon special request, in case of increased snow activity it is possible to cover this walking section of the route by a local avalanche service vehicle. Optimal starting time from you hotel: 8-10 AM. Comfortable shoes, gloves and passport/national ID is all you need to take with you.
