Review

Hidden from human eyes, the Waterfall on the Tekes River is located 320 km from the city of Almaty. The Tekes gorge itself makes a strong impression, especially for those who come here for the first time. It is very wide and covered with a green carpet with flowering plants of all colors. Against the background of all this splendor, rocky mountains rise, and the sky never repeats, pleasing the eye with bizarre shapes of clouds.
Tuzkol in translation from the Kazakh language means "salt lake". It is located in the Almaty region at an altitude of 1959 m in a closed drainless depression between the Elshyn Buiryk and Karatau mountains in the north and Zhabyrtau in the south. The water of many springs is highly mineralized. The salt concentration in the lake varies with the season. Sometimes it can reach such high rates that it can compare with the Dead Sea in Israel and the Great Salt Lake in the United States. The shores of Lake Tuzkol are low and gentle, so mud swamps have appeared along the channels of streams flowing into it. And these muds are curative, therefore they are used in balneological mud therapy in the clinics of Almaty.
The depth of the lake is insignificant, no more than one meter, but it is difficult to swim in it, since the bottom is covered with liquid mud. In addition, there is no infrastructure here and there is nowhere to rinse with fresh water. But you can endlessly admire the picturesque panorama of the ridges of the Central Tien Shan with the highest peak of Kazakhstan, Khan-Tengri Peak and the majestic Pobeda Peak.
