Hello Fellow Travelers,
The trip from the Guest House to Kolsai Lake is an easy thirty-minute drive over a lovely paved road.
Kolsai Lake lies about 1700m above sea level (5577 ft). It has an odd shape and the surrounding Kungey mountains provide a diversity of shadows and an attractive background.
Several young Kazakh visitors join me at the viewpoint above the lake. The more adventurous and energetic travelers hike up from the lakeshore below. (At 1700m - more than a mile high - I think I’ll just admire the view.)
