Kapchagay Lake in winter


Check out this wintertime drone video of a giant reservoir lake in the Central Asian republic of Kazakhstan, compliments of dronogrom.  The Kapchagay Reservoir is located in the Almaty region in the southeastern corner of the country.  Formed by a dam on the Ili River, the lake is 140 km long (about 85 mi.).  Due to the impact on water levels of Lake Balkhash (into which the Ili flows), the reservoir has not been filled to its capacity.  In the mean time, it's become one of the country's top recreational destinations.
