The pearl of Terskey Ala-Too hidden high in the mountains is a glacial Ala-Kul Lake (translated from Kyrgyz as "the Motley Lake"). It is situated at the altitude of 3532 m in the pass of the same name. The lake is quite small. It occupies an area of less than 1.5 sq. km, but its depth can reach over 70 m. Lake Ala-Kul is situated in a colourful bowl of rocky ridges with white tops. There are two ways to get to the lake: through the pass or traveling from the valley Altyn-Arashan.
