Lake Issyk, Kazakhstan
22-SEP-2006 William Sokolenko

Lake Issyk, Kazakhstan

The Issyk Gorge contains the lovely Lake Issyk (1.760m). In 1963 powerful torrents
of melt water from the glacier area poured into the upper reaches of the Issyk river.
The gigantic waves destroyed the natural dam and the lake was washed away within
hours. Even now it has only been partly restored.

Beautiful scenery! The tranquility of the water and the sharp mountains give a great balance to the composition.
Vote!
