Day 3: Kolsai Lakes - Almaty

- Rise at 08:00;

- 3 hours cycling to Kaindy lake
This unique basin (length is 400m) lies at a height of about 1800m above sea level, in the zone of dense spruce forest. The lake was formed in 1911 after a huge earthquake that resulted in a big landslide from the eastern slope. The rockslide “place of origin” can still be seen today, because it has not been overgrown yet. The uniqueness of the lake is that after the rise of natural dam that blocked the gorge, water that filled a basin has formed a lake but has not destroyed the spruce that had been growing in this place along the river. The upper parts of the trees sticking out of the water lost lateral branches and bark, and the wood became white. Such a pattern will delight even the experienced travelers. The lower part of the “drowned” pines retained branches that were overgrown with algae under the water, thus created fantastic underwater landscape.
- A bus arrives at us, into which we load bicycles;
- Transfer to Almaty.
Duration: 4 hours

Meals included:
• Breakfast: Breakfast in the camp
No accommodation included on this day.
