Road to Kolsay Lake in Kazachstan

Postby Loeibeer » Thu Oct 05, 2017 8:42 am

Hi everyone,

Does anyone know if I can make it to Saty with a Mercedes Sprinter (no 4 wheeldrive). Its 70 km to Saty from the main road (close to the canton)

Thanks!

you can even get to the lake.
to zhalanash: don't take the road from kegen (across shirganak, taldy, kensu) - it can destroy every car. take the road p-16 along charyn river valley (it is mostly good tarmac).
the road from saty to lake kaindy is much more difficult, you will need high ground clearance angle.

The road to Saty was under construction this summer. We were there a few days ago, it is almost finished. A bit bumpy still, otherwise very smooth sailing.
