Locals called Lake "Dzhasyl-Kul", which translates as "Green lake." The name “Issyk” is a distorted Kazakh word Esik, which means “door”. By the way, the town, which is located below the lake, has a name just Esik.
According to geologists, the Lake was formed 8 thousand years ago as a result of a powerful collapse of the mountain avalanche, which subsequently created a natural dam with a height of 300 meters.
Lake Issyk is located at an altitude of 1750 m, in the gorge of the Trans-Ili Alatau mountains
In 1939, the lake began to actively develop itself: an asphalt road, a tourist base, and a bus station were quickly built. Tens of thousands of Almaty residents and guests of the city came here all year round to relax in nature.
In 1963 a mighty mudslide hit the Lake, descending from the mountains
and destroyed the lake, that day killed more than 1,000 people. As a result of this cataclysm Lake Issyk, It became less at times.
But already in the early 1990s, the construction of a new dam and other hydraulic structures was completed. And nowadays, the lake has been restored to 3/4 of the original volume!
