Lake Teshik Kul (3,500 m) is a lake that’s actually divided into 2 sections connected by a waterfall. Lake Teshik Kul sits 38 kilometers outside of the village of Bokonbaevo at the end of the Karakaman Valley and can be reached via passes to the east (Ton, 4020 m) or west (Zhalpak Bel, 3300 m).

Near the lake are some hot springs perfect for a relaxing swim. Travelers will also probably stumble across some nomadic shepherds either on the way to the lake or around it.   

Trekking and horseback riding tours are both recommended ways to reach the lake.
