I just got back from the Lake. Took a taxi, was KZT14,500 including waiting time.

There was one check point at the bottom to the hill (KZT1000), but that was it. We were surprised how busy it was at the top, with a few minibuses of Indian tourists and a little coffee van set up. No police, no check points.

Quick update as this has not been updated in a while!

July 2022: I had been planning to go to BAL however hotel told me it is closed as the road is currently under repair. Confirmed with local tour operators.

Check in advance before you head up there. Campit.kz and Steppe Spirit offered me good advice via instagram / WhatsApp
