Sunken Forest – Kaindy Lake

Kaindy is a mountain lake located in one of the gorges of Kungei Alatau to the east of Almaty. It is a popular tourist destination.

In 1910, landslides blocked the gorge and soon it was filled with mountain river water. Coniferous forest that grew here was flooded and since then this place is called “sunken forest.”
