Alakol is an amazing lake, which is more like a sea in size, occupies a huge territory in the Balkhash-Alakol lowland. Translated into Russian, its name means “colorful lake”, because any mood of the weather is reflected on the surface of its water surface, and the underground keys feeding the lake only increase the play of azure and deep blue.

For a long time this lake is famous for its healing properties with a black beach of smooth volcanic pebbles. Thousands of tourists come here every year to relax and pamper the body with the healing water of Alakol (it includes dozens of high-quality natural salts). The climate in its vicinity is rather mild and not hot, invigorating freshness of the air helps to find peace of mind, calm down and rejuvenate. Near the lake there are 7 sanatoriums and many hotels for every taste and budget, where you can comfortably accommodate the whole family.

July and August are the peak of the swimming season: at this time there is a comfortable temperature of water and air. The very beautiful lake Alakol and its coastal zones will delight anyone with their magnificent landscapes (especially against the backdrop of the sunset), healing properties, an atmosphere of calm and tranquility.
