The water in Burabai grew more transparent,
And its shore is overgrown with a good forest.
There is a thick wall around the lake
From pines of tall and slender birches

— Saken Seifulin, Kokshetau


Borovoye Lake is one of the most beautiful places in Kazakhstan, a resort popular among residents of the capital. It is called the "pearl of Kazakhstan" and "Kazakhstan Switzerland".The lake's water is very clear, due to the fact that the shores are mostly granite or sandy. The depths are small, a maximum of 7 meters, and on average = 3.4, which means that the water warms up well and, as a bonus, you can see the bottom at a distance. The shores are very picturesque. Mountains and hills covered with coniferous forest, bizarre rocks - all this remains in the memory of even a traveler who has seen a lot for a long time.
In the western part of the lake there is an amazing Rock (stone island) of Zhumbaktas - a mystery rock. If you look at Zhumbaktas from the blue bay, you can see a girl in it, if you look at it from the other side - a terrible witch. Let's hope that she turns the right side to us!

Burabai land is the pearl of Kazakhstani tourism. Forests, clear, moderately cool water, a large area of the water basin.

The distances are laid on the territory of the waters of Lake Borovoe.
- 1 k is a simple route for amateurs, laid in a circular pattern.
- 4 k – crosses Lake Borovoye from one coast to the other.
- 8 k – for brave and trained athletes, you will have to completely swim across the lake, go around Mount Zhumbaktas and return back.

The starting point is located on the territory of Wyndham Garden Burabay. The hotel is located 10 meters from the coastline with mountain views across the lake. The comfortable location of the location makes preparation for the start as convenient as possible and gives you the opportunity to come with your loved ones, combining family holidays with participation in competitions.

Burabai

A place steeped in ancient national legends. The forests surrounding each of the large lakes of the reservoir are so rich in natural diversity that Borovoye is often called the local Switzerland. Water has medicinal properties. And huge areas of forests containing conifers allow you to get oxygen reserves through the air purified by nature itself.

Lake Borovoye or Auliekol (sacred lake) is one of the largest lakes in the Kokshetau system. Here you can be content with swimming in clear refreshing water, with a sandy or rocky bottom, as well as walking through the coniferous forest, which surrounds the entire water surface.

Borovoi's nature generously shares its gifts. Here you can spend time away from your usual life, mentally relax from the daily hustle and bustle, recharge your batteries.

Every part of this fabulous place is saturated with ancient stories and beliefs. And this factor has made it possible to develop an excursion direction, and in your free time you will be able to visit places with a guide of varying complexity: from a small excursion to an amateur hike in the mountains with an escort.
