In Kyrgyzstan, there are about two thousand lakes. Among them, the rare beauty stands Alpine lake, Issyk-Kul. It is located in the northeastern part of the country between the mountain ranges of the North Tien Shan: Kungei Ala-Too (facing the sun) and Terskey Ala-Too (facing the sun) at an altitude of 1609 m above sea level. Issyk-Kul, one of the largest mountain lakes in the world. Frost salt lake Issyk-Kul - the pearl of Kyrgyzstan. One of the largest and deepest alpine lakes in the world. Depth in some places reaches almost 700 meters. Due to the large depth of the lake water does not have time to cool down completely - the lake never freezes, except for some banks. Issyk-Kul is translated from Kyrgyz - "Hot Lake". The ancients called this same Kyrgyz pearl of the country, "Ace-Kul" - "Salt Lake" for the salty taste of the water. The famous Russian traveler and scientist, explorer of Central Asia, NM Przewalski, was in love with this land and asked to bury him on the shore of the lake. Having seen the beauty of Kyrgyzstan, he said: "This is the same in Switzerland, only better." After the death of Prezhevalskogo in his honor was named the city, located near the grave of the traveler. Then, after the collapse of the Soviet Union, Prezhevalsk was renamed Karakol. The city is a museum Prezhevalskogo.
