The pearl of Terskey Ala-Too hidden high in the mountains is a glacial lake Ala-Kul (translated from Kyrgyz as "the Motley Lake"). It is situated at the altitude of 3532 m in the pass of the same name.
The lake is quite small. It occupies an area of less than 1.5 sq. km, but its depth can reach over 70 m. Lake Ala-Kul is situated in a colorful bowl of rocky ridges with white tops. There are two ways to get to the lake: through the pass or traveling from the valley Altyn-Arashan.
Alpine cold, the sun shining brightly and the rocky shores of Lake Ala-Kul allow the traveler to feel like somewhere at the edge of the world, in the realm of peace and tranquility.
