9. Issyk Kul, Kyrgyzstan

This lake in the mountains of northern Tien Shan is Kyrgyzstan’s largest lake, and is also the tenth largest in the world in terms of water volume. Also, what’s interesting about Issyk Kul is that it’s a salt-water lake; in fact, it’s the second largest such body of water after the Caspian Sea. Despite being high up in a mountainous area at 1,600 meters (5,250 feet) above sea level, this lake never freezes due to the salt content in the water. The rugged mountain surroundings and the beach areas have turned Issyk Kul into one of the most magnificent lakes in Asia and at the same time, Kyrgyzstan’s top natural tourist destination.
