Issyk Kul lake. Most of our tours in Kyrgyzstan covers Issyk Kul Lake. Issyk-Kul is the pearl of Tien Shan - the name means "warm lake" because it never freezes. This is because it is located in the center of the basin, it has no effluent, and the presence of vaporization means that the water is salty, which lowers the freezing level. In fact, in the northeastern part, which is the driest and narrowest, a thin ice crust can sometimes appear. The lake is located at an altitude of 1600 m above sea level, in the center of the lowlands, surrounded by mountains. It is about 180 km long and 60 km wide, and the maximum depth is 700m, the lake is the second largest mountain lake (after Lake Titicaca in South America). It is also called the second most transparent lake in the world (after Lake Baikal), visibility is 20 m. The water level varies and decreases, partly due to the distribution of rivers for irrigation, and this is also possible due to climatic changes. It is a drainless lake located in northeastern Kyrgyzstan. The lake is one of the world's largest, although its water level fell by about 8.5 meters between 1856 (year of the first official records) and 2002. Issyk Kul lake is bordered by the Kungey-Alatau Range in the north and the Terskey-Alatau Range in the south. The northern sandy beaches of the lake have been used for recreational tourism since the 1950s. The lake is also noted for clear water, which gives life to more than 20 kinds of fish. The naked osman, the chebak, and the carp are fished for commercial purposes. Kyrgyz archaeologists claim that they discovered large underwater settlements, which disappeared most probably due to a large earthquake or water rise in the Middle Ages
