Lake Issyk

From Kazakhstan Encyclopedia

Template:Infobox lake The Lake Issyk also known as Issyk Lake (Template:Lang-kz) is a lake in Kazakhstan fed by the Issyk River. It should not be confused with the Issyk-Kul Lake in neighboring Kyrgyzstan.

The lake is mostly famous for the way it was created (as a result of an ancient natural landslide damming a valley), destroyed (another natural landslide destroying that dam in 1963, with a subsequent flood damaging the city of Esik), and re-created (with human help).
