Lake Jasybay (Template:Lang-kk, alternately Zhasybay) is a lake located in Kazakhstan's Bayanaul National Park, about 85 miles south of Ekibastuz, in south-eastern Pavlodar Region. The lake is 3.5 kilometers (2.2 miles) long and 1.9 kilometers (1.2 miles) wide.

It is a popular tourist destination for residents of central and northern Kazakhstan because of its clear water and scenic views of the surrounding mountains from its beaches.

It is named for Jasybay, a mythic Kazakh hero who was killed on its shore in a battle with invaders.
