It is located on the southern shore of Issyk-Kul Lake, 73 km from Balykchi. This unique reservoir is the saltiest mountain lake in Kyrgyzstan. It is also popularly called Dead Lake, Kara Kel. On the north side of the lake, there are sandy rocks, on the South — embankments with a smooth descent to the water. There is little vegetation, as the conditions for survival are not easy.
The lake is called “dead” because of its high salt content, except for a few types of bacteria, nothing lives in it. At the same time, salt makes reservoir healing.
You can get your eyes burned if you dive into the lake with your eyes open. It is also impossible to drown in it due to the high density of water, and a person is easily held on its surface in a relaxed state.
