Autumn on Lake Kaindy

Lake Kaindy is located in the south-east of Kazakhstan in one of the gorges of the Kungey-Alatau mountain system at an altitude of 1,667 meters above sea level. The lake was formed as a result of the powerful Kemin earthquake in 1911.

The main feature of this unique natural reservoir is the trunks of the Tien Shan spruces, which protrude directly from the water. Before the earthquake, there was a spruce forest in the gorge. Scientists say that these trunks are about 150-200 years old. The wood is practically petrified and does not decompose.
