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.

Hey.

We went to Kolsai and kiandy lake 30th of November. Honestly, with rocks and winter, I would advice to take 4wd.
For kolsai with 4wd, it will be difficult, for kolsai it is impossible (big rocks and small rover to cross)

Maybe in summer, this is different, but in winter, better get this 4wd.

Also, they did not let us go to kolsai lake 2 with the snow :(
Note that they did not let us go to kiandy by car, they stopped us at the entrance and we had to walk for 4 km.
