Big Almaty Lake

Big Almaty Lake can be reached by car, bus (bus 28), mountain bike or by foot. By car it’s only 30-40 minutes, so we choose that option. The lake sits at 2500 meters above sea level in the Big Almaty Gorge. What makes this lake special is that the colour changes depending on the weather and the time of year. During our visit the lake had a deep turquoise colour, but it can also have an emerald green hue. The surrounding forest makes it even more spectacular.

The Central Mosque Almaty

Central Mosque located in downtown Almaty is built in the Timurid style of architecture and accommodates up to 7,000 worshippers. The large turquoise-blue dome visible from quite a distance beckons the faithful to prayer five times a day. As you get closer, you will begin to notice how refreshingly different the white marble mosque looks from all the grey Soviet-style architecture around the city. The 5 tall, blue-topped minarets, the calligraphy on the exterior facades, the slender archways, and the long, meandering path to the entrance flanked by grassy patches, will all captivate your senses before the richly carved stonework inside blows the remainder of your mind away.
