Big Almaty Lake in Winter

Postby Rheza » Tue Dec 10, 2019 12:28 pm

Hi guys,

Is it possible to drive up to the lake in the winter time (early of January 2020)? I rent a Toyota Prado 4x4. How is the road condition along the way up? Any driving skill needed?

Any advice to visit in the morning or afternoon? Thank you

I think they clear it in winter. I remember driving there in April when there was still a good amount of snow and it was cleared from the road. It's asphalt all the way.

Hi, you can go in winter but its like russian roulette, sometimes weather is bad and the road it's very full of ice and snow and they close it.
