Big Almaty Lake, Kazakhstan
The most unique thing about this hike through Kazakhstan is you can stay in a soviet era observatory on the hike itself! This hike is 12 miles one way so it’s a good overnight and back hike. Twelve miles in you find yourself at the Tian Shan Astronomical Observatory which finds itself frozen in time to the soviet era. It’s creepy but charming set next to a gorgeous alpine lake. This has to be one of the most unique hikes in Kazakhstan.
