Swim In The Blue Waters of Issyk-Kul Lake

Legends say that four drowned cities lie at the bottom of the Issyk-Kul Lake. This is an endorheic lake in the northern Tian Shan mountains in eastern Kyrgyzstan. In geologic terms, it has a limited drainage that normally retains water and allows no outflow to other external bodies of water. The name means "warm lake" in Kyrgyz language. Its beauty lasts all year long even though it is surrounded by snow-capped peaks, it never freezes over.
