From the city center of Almaty you will go on a one-day trip to the Bartogaiskiy water reservoir, where you can have a great time. On the way to the water reservoir from the window you will see many beautiful landscapes. The water reservoir is located in the Bartogai gorge, at the banks of the Chilik river, between the Soghetta and Toraigyr mountains. This reservoir was built to store meltwater in winter and to use it for fields irrigation through a 160-km special canal in the summer.
After admiring the wonderful landscape and resting on the shore, you can pass the tunnel, made through the rock inside of the mountain to two unique fountains. They pull out of the rock under great pressure and with loud roar upwards. This view of colliding streams, that form a myriad of splashes and rainbows, will give you a lot of vivid impressions. This is the influx of water from the Chilik river, which occurs from June to September.
Here you can have a small picnic, relax in the shade of a small grove, take a lot of beautiful photos or go fishing and forget about the city bustle.
