The largest lake in Kyrgyzstan - Issyk-Kul is one of the largest mountain lakes in the world. Lake Issyk-Kul is rightly called the pearl of Central Asia. Issyk-Kul is the second most transparent lake in the world, after Lake Baikal. The mild winters of the basin and the reserves of water heat, as well as the salinity of the lake, prevent it from becoming covered with ice even in winter.
