Kara-Suu lake

The lake area

Kara-Suu lake is located near the Toktogul Reservoir, in the area of Taktalyk ridge, at an altitude of about 2,000 meters above sea level. The lake was formed in ancient times as a result of collapse of a part of the mountain range. A magnificent view to one of the peaks of the Fergana Range – Alyampasy opens up from the shore of Kara-Suu.
