Ak Bulak

Trip for fans of mountain ascensions and breath-taking views


May to October



Tour description

The green-blue Issyk Lake is incredibly beautiful in all seasons. Each resident of Almaty knows its dramatic history. On July 7, 1963 the powerful mud stream literally splashed out the lake, leaving it devastated. The lake was gradually restored with time and we suggest going with us to the wonderful spirit-lifting tour to the top with the magnificent view on Issyk and its surroundings.

As option the program can be diversified with a 2 hour horse ride. It is also possible to climb to another top, which would take additional two hours.



  • Trip for the experienced travelers
  • Round trip on the ropeway
  • Ascension to the mountain top
  • The view over the Issyk lake from a height of 2000 meters
