Ala Kul Lake Alpine Trail 1 is a trail laid into the ground by the feet of humans and animal. Beginning in a green fertile valley and topping out at a nearly 4000 meter talus covered saddle, one does not see Ala Kul Lake until you've made it all the way.

This is an adventure for a long day trip or even better, by bikepacking! Routes on the waterfall outlet side of the lake can lead you out and down a different route out.


This is very high and out in the middle of nowhere. It snows in summer. Be prepared.
