Lunar Ak-Baital Pass (4655m) and Karakul Lake - the highest lake in Central Asia

Lunar Ak-Baital Pass (4655m) and Karakul Lake - the highest lake in Central Asia

The high pass of Ak-Baital will get you closer to the moon than perhaps you’ve ever been, and not just because of the head-swimming altitude – the landscape is lunar barren and otherworldly, though a little wetter than the earth’s orbiting rock – beautiful blue water lakes bejewel the area, the best being the haunting deep of a lifeless Lake Karakul. Travelling through here is like a trip to a parallel world, where the landscape is bigger, bolder and infused with the eerie, all under the high, wide presence of a brilliant blue sky.
