Big Almaty lake + falcon show
The excursion duration 5-6 hours
The road to the Big Almaty Lake goes practically through all city and further along the streaming road of the Almaty gorge. On the way, you will be able to enjoy beautiful landscapes of mountains of Iliysky AlaTau and the well-known Tan-Shansky fir-tree, aspens and a juniper.
The lake is located at the height of 2511 m above sea level. The big Almaty Lake was formed as a result of activity of an ancient glacier and, thanks to a mountain arrangement, water in the lake always remains cool - even in July water temperature doesn't exceed +10 degrees.
The lake is a source of supply with drinking water of the city and access for tourists is limited. Therefore, the route of an excursion conducts above the Big Almaty Lake on the observation deck from where the magnificent view on the lake and mountains, which are reflected in it, opens and excellent photos turn out.
Further, you visit falcon farm, where it is possible to see an unforgettable show with birds of prey, and later it will be possible to look at their life, to take a set of pictures and with great mood to return to the city.
