Alakol District (Template:Lang-kk) is a district of Almaty Region in Kazakhstan. The administrative center of the district is the town of Usharal.[1] Population: Template:Kz-population2013 Template:Kz-census2009 Template:Kz-census1999

The Tunkuruz Hydroelectric Power Plant is located in the district.


The district is located in the Ballkhash-Alakol Depression. Parts of its eastern border (where the district borders on East Kazakhstan Region) run through the chain of lakes - Lakes Sasykkol, Koshkarkol, Alakol, and Zhalanashkol. There are no major rivers in the district; the fairly small Tentek River, which flows toward Lake Sasykkol, but reaches it only intermittently, is the largest one.
