Issyk Lake, located not far from Almaty, has its peculiar past. The locals have always referred to this body of water as "Green Lake." One of the European explorers made the first reference to a beautiful body of water back in 1856.
Almaty's Issyk Lake is in Ile-Alatau National Park, on the district's southwestern edge. It is a hollow that was made when tectonic plates moved apart a long time ago. It is thought that Issyk Lake, near Almaty, started forming about 10,000 years ago.
This happened because a piece of the rock that broke off and fell into the river caused the river to fall. So, a dam grew up, and it was about 300 meters tall. The reason this pond got bigger was because of the building of this dam.
