So, if you love adventures, then do visit Kolsai Lake. Camping beside the lake and hiking to the other lakes is just the kind of adventure which you will never forget!
Best Time to Visit: June - September
How to Visit: If you rent a car, then you can reach the Saty village which is around 6-hours from Almaty. From there, it is another 10-15 km to the Kolsai National Park entrance gate.
On the other hand, if you are taking a shared taxi, then you will need to find one going to Kegen. You can get a shared taxi from Sahayat Bus Station in Almaty for 2000 Tengge (375 INR) per person. The taxi will drop you off near the Saty intersection from where you need to hitchhike or get another taxi.
The cost of reaching Saty from here is 1000 - 1500 Tengge. And the cost to reach Kolsai National Park from here is 2000 Tengge.
