Kaindy in translation means ‘birch’, it is located among the amazing mountain forest at the altitude of 2000 meters above the sea level. The origin of the lake goes to 1911, when the earthquake has happened. In the result, the landslide cascaded and made natural dam blocking the water going down. Now it turned into the magnificent mountain lake. After having enjoyed incredible beauty, you will return to guesthouse in Saty.

The path to the Kolsai-II goes through the thick pine trees, white mountain river and lush alpine meadow. The approximate distance between lakes is 7 km. Usually the healthy and average-trained person can do one way in 3-3,5 hours. The elevation drop is about 400 m, it is from 1818 m to 2250 m above the sea level.
